Police investigating bogus charity collections in Kent have arrested an 18-year-old woman.
A woman with a sponsorship form, who claimed to be hard of hearing, called at a number of homes in Aylesham, near Dover, asking for money.
But police made an arrest after a neighbour spotted the woman throwing a form away in a wheelie bin.
The suspect, from Gillingham, has been bailed until 8 March.
Police believe at least £70 was collected from 13 people but would like to hear from anyone else who believes they may have been a victim.
