Con Man Hits Several Stores in Southern Vermont
(Host) Police in Keene, New Hampshire, and southern Vermont are looking for a man who is using an old con man's trick to steal hundreds of dollars from stores. Police say the man appears to be a befuddled, grandfatherly-type - but don't be fooled.
He's been walking up to customer service desks and asking the clerks to make change so he can mail a relative some money in a birthday card. Then he uses a quick-change trick to confuse the clerk and walk off with the money.
Police say he's pulled the trick eight to ten times recently.
