ANDREWS - Andrews Police are sending out a warning after they arrested a couple men claiming to be selling magazines.

Turns out it was all a scam.

The two men, who are from Las Vegas, were arrested Sunday morning and charged with soliciting without a permit.

Chief Bud Jones tells NewsWest 9, the pair was among five men they believe were making the rounds over the weekend.

The other three were not caught.

Police say operations like these target unsuspecting victims in an effort to get money.
