A Rochester man is accused of asking for donations to charities then pocketing the cash.
Officers say Charles Tavolino, 41, took donations for both fake and real charities including the Childhood Cancer Association.
It's also alleged Tavolino involved a 10 year old boy in the scheme to solicit funds.
Tavolino has also been accused of altering a check made out to one of the charities and then trying to cash it in.
Last year, police arrested Tavolino's brother Joseph for a similar scheme.
