LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police have arrested two people for allegedly soliciting money without a permit.

According to arrest reports, 32-year-old Jesse T. Maxwell and 24-year-old Jane M. Maxwell were stopped by police on Vogue Avenue, just north of the intersection of Manner Dale Drive and Klonway Drive, on Thursday afternoon.

Police say the pair were collecting money door-to-door, and claimed that the money was being used to help a child with leukemia.

According to the reports, Jesse Maxwell had numerous fake IDs from a church in Bullitt County, gave officers a false name and falsely claimed to be the youth director at Mt. Washington United Methodist Church.

Officers say Jane Maxwell also gave them a false name, but police were able to track down her mugshot and she eventually admitted her true identity.

Police say the pair did not have a legal permit to be soliciting -- and they eventually admitted to having a heroin habit.

Police seized $33 from them, according to the report.

Both were charged with theft by deception.
