An employee at a Wrightsboro Road business told police she was tricked into giving a customer $99.
According to a police report, a man approached a 56-year-old employee at Check Exchange, 3215 Wrightsboro Road, on Wednesday afternoon and asked her to exchange his small denomination bills for larger bills.
Police said the man convinced her that she had accidentally handed him a $1 bill instead of the $100 bill she should have given him. The cashier took back the dollar and handed him a $100 bill.
Later, the cashier’s drawer came up $99 short.
Police said surveillance video shows the man sticking the $100 bill into his pocket before claiming the mistake.
Police said the cashier had to reimburse the business.
