ALPHARETTA, Ga. Two men with outstanding warrants were arrested Sept. 14 for trying to raise money for a fake cause at the mall.

Two men were seen carrying clipboards and soliciting donations to buy jerseys for Morse High School outside North Point Mall. When the pair were confronted by mall security about having a solicitation permit, the men allegedly ran. Police tracked down a man matching the description and spoke with him. Julian Peavy, 23, of Houston, Texas, admitted to trying to raise money for the high school. He allegedly admitted he and his partner Xavier Alex, 22, of Atlanta, had no connection with the school and were actively deceiving people. Both Peavy and Alex, it turns out, had warrants for their arrest.

Both were arrested for solicitation without a permit.
