Authorities said Tuesday that a man shown in a photo and described as a credit card fraud suspect was a mistake.

On Monday, the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office released a surveillance photo of a customer at a SunTrust ATM on Gordon Highway and identified him as a theft suspect. On Tuesday, however, it said the bank had provided the wrong photo.

A sheriff’s spokesman said the department is working with the bank to obtain the correct footage and suspect information.

Some one will be happy.

Any bets the wrong guy in the photo will likely get a nice deposit in the coming months.

But wait !
The ST bank photo came with a clear disclaimer, saying something like;

ST could not be responsible for the photo's use, beyond ST staff.
