Louisville police arrest woman accused of fraudulently collecting money for local school

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a woman who fraudulently claimed to be collecting money for a local Christian school has been arrested.

Kasey Hoben is now in custody, according to police. 

Police had been asking for the public's help to find Hoben. Detectives say she had been visiting homes, claiming to be with Northside Christian School and collecting money for trips or sporting events. Whenever the homeowners gave her a check, police say she would turn it into cash for herself.

"She has no affiliation with this school whatsoever," Louisville Metro Police Detective Chris Horn told WDRB.

Horn said Hoben would then take the victim's $5 or $10 check, increase its value by adding numbers and then cash it. Horn says there are likely more than 20 victims.

Police say Hoben checked into the Economy Inn on Bardstown Road, near Goldsmith Lane, and officers were contacted after an employee of the inn recognized her from recent news reports. 

Hoben is expected to be booked at Louisville Metro Corrections Friday afternoon.
