• Cops: Man used daughter as 'bait' in solicitations

    JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - A western Pennsylvania man has been jailed on charges that he used his young daughter as bait when he went door-to-door, pretending to be selling pizzas and cookies to raise money.

    Instead, Johnstown police Chief Craig Foust said 28-year-old Jon Beltz didn't intend to deliver the food before he was charged Sunday.

    That's when police said they found him with a list of people he solicited, along with money he collected from them.

    Beltz faces a preliminary hearing Thursday on charges including corruption of minors and theft by deception. He remained in the Cambria County Prison on Tuesday.
