Police search for suspects who stole more than $3,000 from a Red Deer business

Three men at large after stealing gift cards and cash during a series of transactions

  • May. 1, 2017 9:18 p.m.

Red Deer RCMP are warning businesses about a team of male ‘quick change’ scammers who stole more than $3,000 in gift cards and cash during a series of transactions at a local business on April 25th, and ask the public to contact RCMP if they recognize any of the three men in the photos.

Quick change scams are done when the scammers make a purchase and then ask retail staff for a specific combination of bills as their change.

The scammers then change their minds and ask for different combinations of bills, and repeat this process until the staff person becomes confused and the scammer walks away with extra cash as well as the product they were pretending to buy.

Red Deer RCMP believe this team of three male scammers may currently be travelling through the province hitting multiple businesses.

If anyone recognizes these suspects or has information about this investigation, contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575.

Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
