Beggar who needs “money for diapers” caught with Iphone X, $500 cash, and Coach purse

Police in New Jersey have cited a woman panhandling for her “baby” after discovering she was a scam artist.

“Our Street Crimes Unit officers found this woman walking in and out of traffic on Vauxhall Road at Hilton Ave. (Rt. 78 west exit) with the below sign attempting to scam people passing by on Vauxhall Road,” Township of Union NJ Police Department said.

“She claimed to be from Romania and is now living in Queens. She was asking for cash for her baby, but they pointed out to her that she had a $500 purse, some jewelry and a new iPhone X and did not appear to be in critical need of cash. Their investigation led her to admit that she and several other women got dropped off to panhandle throughout NJ.”

According to local news, she was also wearing Michael Kors boots, had a Coach handbag and was seen with freshly painted nails.

Dorina Caldaras, 34,  was issued a ticket for impeding the flow of traffic and received a township summons Soliciting without a permit. 

“It is nice to be charitable, but it’s not a good idea to donate to someone on the side of the road with a sign. If you see someone who may need help, you can call our HQ and our officers will respond and assess,” police said.
