LAWRENCE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Another church in Lawrence County says a couple claiming to be Louisiana flood victims asked them for money over the weekend.

Surveillance video at Ravenden Church of Christ captured the couple on camera.

Clear Springs Baptist Church Pastor Milburn Teasley said it's the same couple who came to their church asking for donations to get back to Louisiana.

Ravenden Police Chief Tim McComas told Region 8 News that the couple's plea for help is actually a scam.

Both Ravenden Police and the Lawrence County Sheriff's Department are now investigating.
