Police seek man who tricked Check Exchange cashier

Police are asking for help identifying a man who tricked a cashier into giving him $99 on Oct. 31.


According to a police report, a man approached a 56-year-old employee at Check Ex­change, 3215 Wrights­boro Road, and asked her to exchange his small denomination bills for larger ones.

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.

The man was traveling in a white Toyota Camry.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Rich­mond County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 821-1020.
