Boulder police are warning businesses and banks to be on the lookout for a man who recently tricked both a business clerk and a bank teller into giving him more change than he was due.
The first incident reported to police was at Great West Bank on 19th Street on Dec. 3. The second was Feb. 2 at Kidrobot on Pearl Street.
The suspect approached the clerks and asked for change, police said. He distracted them and switched out higher denomination bills for smaller ones, telling the clerks they had made a mistake. The clerks recounted the money correctly and unknowingly gave the suspect extra cash, police said.
The man is described as a white or Hispanic male in his 30s or 40s, with black or brown hair. In the first incident at the bank, he was wearing a baseball cap that was white in the back and red in the front.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Boulder Police Department's Tip Line at 303-441-1974.
Those who have information, but wish to remain anonymous, should contact the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or 1-800-444-3776.
