GREENFIELD - A Graves County couple faces charges in Weakley County after going to different churches in Greenfield on Easter Sunday and obtaining money by fraud.

KYTN reports that 49-year-old Randy Cole Riley and 41-year-old Dawn Lashell Riley, both of Mayfield, were arrested by Greenfield police after the two, along with their 11-year-old son, had been to different churches in the Greenfield area asking for money.

According to Greenfield police, Randy Riley received $110 dollars from Greenfield First Presbyterian after he told them he had to take his sick wife to Jackson.

Meanwhile, Dawn Riley went to the Methodist church in Greenfield and asked for gas money to get to Jackson. However, the church had been notified of the couple and did not give them money.

It was later learned, the couple had also been to Greenfield Church of Christ where the juvenile asked for money to get food.

Both Randy and Dawn Riley are charged with theft of services and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
