23/02/2016 – GAILDORF, Germany – Conman tricked shop out of cash
A customer used a con-trick to distract staff from their cash register momentarily so he could steal money. The man, who has been described as “dark skinned, North African appearance” paid for a spurious purchase with a €50 note but immediately changed his mind, asking for the return of the note with the same serial number. During the confusion he made good his escape. Police are appealing for witnesses.
