WAUSEON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Wauseon Police are asking for help finding a man accused of scamming local cashiers out of hundreds of dollars.

The suspect was caught on camera at the Ace Hardware in Wauseon, but he has successfully scammed at least one other business.

Police are calling him a quick-change artist. They say he walks in and tries to pay for something small with a 100 or 50-dollar bill. After the cashier gives him change for the purchase, he says he wants the $100 back and would rather pay with a smaller denomination, often pulling from the pile of change he just received.

The police are warning local business owners, saying they should take extra precautions if they think someone is trying to scam their cashiers.

"Stop. Call us, shut the drawer down," said Chief Keith Torbet. "If it's someone that's trying to scam you, they're going to leave, so just be vigilant and call us if you need us."

If anyone has information about who the man is they should call the Wauseon Police Department at 419-335-3821.
