LITITZ, Pa. -- (WPMT) -- There are hundreds of thousands of GoFundMe pages to raise money for people in need.

Police in Lititz, Lancaster County said 31-year-old Nicole Leahy took advantage of that.

Detective Jevon Miller said, "A girl from Florida contacted us about an account that she had found using her family's tragic story of her son passing to raise money."

Miller said the woman who contacted him started a GoFundMe account in December 2015 for her one-year-old son's medical and funeral expenses. He died from a medical complication.

Police said Leahy, who lives in Lititz, also made a GoFundMe account in December 2015 for that Florida family with the same story.
