Dayton police arrested a panhandler falsely claiming to be a veteran, before authorities discovered a crack pipe during the man’s jail booking, according to a police report.
Police said the 41-year-old panhandler, Janon Price, held a sign reading “Homeless Vet Anything Helps God Bless!” before his arrest Tuesday on the 900 block of Wayne Ave.
“I asked him if he had prior service in any branch of the military,” wrote the Dayton officer. “Mr. Price stated that he did not serve in the military.”
