Suspected scammer, Katrina Glock, arrested for targeting Valley homes

GILBERT, AZ - Police arrested a 25-year-old woman who claimed to be a high school student as she went door-to-door to scam residents out of money.

Katrina Glock was arrested late Thursday night by Phoenix police, according to the Gilbert Police Department.

Police said Glock scammed two people out of $120 by pretending she was a Gilbert High School student.

"The victim is asked to buy magazine subscriptions for the Wounded Warrior's Program," stated Sgt. Jesse Sanger about the scammer's lie. "She is trying to raise money for her softball team to attend a tournament in Hawaii."

ABC15 learned that Glock was arrested in Walla Walla, Washington last year for the same crime with several other individuals.

Detectives in Washington believe the group used the same lies and scams in California, too.

"She faked it pretty well," said Gilbert resident Cynthia Kelley.

Kelly said she talked to Glock on her front porch, but did not give her any money. "She had lots of energy."
