Short-change artist dupes clerk

Sandusky Register Staff • Aug 27, 2014 at 2:38 PM

Three men entered the electronics store around 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Two of the men immediately began distracting employees, then proceeded outside and started to fight, the report said.

As those two fought, the third purchased a DVD at the register. The man paid with a $100 bill, but asked for different change several times. At one point, he gave her the change back, and asked for his $100 bill in return.

When the employee said she was going to ask a co-worker for help, the man said, “Give me my receipt, I have to go,” and walked out, the report said. Employees counted the cash register and found $400 had been taken.

Perkins police plan to review surveillance from the store to determine the men’s possible identities.
