2 women arrested in connection to fraudulent solicitation

GILBERT, Ariz. -

She claimed to be a standout high school softball player raising money for a school trip, but police say it was all lies.

The woman even told potential victims that money they gave her would also help wounded soldiers.

Police say Katrina Glock said she was a high school student, but she was actually in her mid-20s.

She had a fairly believable story and was selling magazine subscriptions, claiming the proceeds would help her causes – and she was able to convince at least one person to pay up.

It didn't take long for police to figure out that 25-year-old Katrina Glock wasn't the person she claimed to be when she knocked on doors in a Gilbert neighborhood near Gilbert and Warner.

She told people here she was a Gilbert High School student trying to raise money by selling magazine subscriptions.

"She was a softball player on the softball team and she wanted to go to Hawaii. They were going Hawaii cause they placed real high and they were going to go to a tournament in Hawaii so they were raising money," says Cynthia Kelley, who was approached by the suspect.

Police say Glock also claimed some of the proceeds would go to the Wounded Warriors project, a charity designed to help injured soldiers when they return home.

"She started to walk up my driveway I said don't bother going there. I said I don't want anything.

The neighbors knew something was off.

"I though it was a little bit strange that she was, just like in a hurry. She seemed like she was really rattling on. She seemed like she wanted to go someplace else right away," says Lorraine Carney.

After one neighbor called Gilbert High School asking questions, police were notified.

They tracked the suspect down to a hotel near I-17 and Peoria. Glock and 20-year-old Nicole Odeay were both arrested. At this point it's not clear what Odeay's involvement is.

Glock, however, even claimed she was going to be appearing on ESPN next month -- her made up softball team was that good.

"I certainly wouldn't by anything from her. Yeah, and there are a lot of people that ring your doorbell that you feel that something is amiss."

Glock actually works for a legitimate subscription company. It is possible she was just trying to increase sales, but at this point her motive isn't clear.

She confessed to making up all those stories.
