What's wrong with these statements?  I'm getting an error on the statement indicated:

Cannot cast from source type to destination type.
string searchCmd = "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM SiteData WHERE SITE_ID = '" +  txtSiteID.Text + "'";       
c.CommandText = searchCmd;
if(SQLite.conn.State == ConnectionState.Closed)
    SQLite.conn.Open ();

int siteCount = (int)c.ExecuteScalar();  //  <-------  error occurs here
