Woman told church she needed gifts for her small children
Police say Kimberly Lawson, 44, of Gatehouse Drive in East Wareham, received several toys and household items from St. Vincent de Paul Church Charities in Sandwich after she lied about needing presents for her small children.
After getting the donations, she tried to sell them, police said.
Lawson also lied about not being able to pay her rent and was given financial assistance, police said.
Police seized six trash bags of items she falsely received from the charity. The items have been returned to the church to be given to families truly in need.
Lawson was arrested and charged with receiving stolen property. She will be arraigned Monday.
