According to Lieutenant Mike Arnold, at approximately 3:44 p.m. on Saturday, March 14, 2009 the Sheriff’s Office received a call from Quizno’s advising that a black male, 30 to 40 years old, approximately 5’9″ tall and 200 pounds confused a cashier while making change by being verbally forceful about the domination of the currency. This tactic is used in money changing scams. The subject is reported to have a shaved head, mustache, wearing baggy blue jeans, a vertical striped multi-colored shirt, tan boots, and a black coat with a fur trim hood.
Wal-mart’s loss prevention security advised they were scammed in the same manner approximately five minutes prior to the incident at Quizno’s. When checking Wal-mart’s security cameras in the area it was noted that the subject and another black male left the area in a black Dodge Charger with tinted rear windows. The vehicle appeared to have Virginia license plates on the front and rear of the vehicle.
Deputies checked the area but were unable to locate the subjects or the vehicle. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Lieutenant Mike Arnold at 540 635-4128.
