FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a man suspected of scamming multiple churchgoers in Fargo.

The Forum newspaper reports that prosecutors have charged Alan Farah II with felony theft, after he allegedly swindled people at several churches with bogus stories, such as his need for money to buy a plane ticket because of a family tragedy overseas.

Farah is believed to be tied to alleged scams in at least five other states, using different last names.
