Frederick County police Thursday arrested a 42-year-old man accused of defrauding a New York state senator, among others.

Police arrested Francisco Alberto Calcano, of Frederick, and accused him of defrauding people by calling victims and pretending to be a Dominican Republic ambassador to the U.S.

Authorities said Calcano defrauded people out of about $11,500 by promising their donations would go towards emergency utility vehicles and shipments of vehicles to the Dominican Republic.
