Thieves deceive convenience store clerks to steal cash
UNDATED (WKRC) -- Kentucky State Police say a pair of thieves are deceiving convenience store employees to steal cash.
Thefts or attempted thefts have been reported five times in Carroll, Owen and Trimble Counties. In each case, a man asks the clerks about the store's owners or managers.
Later, a caller poses as the owner or manager and explains that an employee has been stealing money from the store. He tells the clerks to put the cash from the safes and registers in a money bag and someone will pick it up. Police haven't said how many times the thieves were successful. This is also similar to a case at an Ameristop in Greenville, Indiana.
Two suspects have been identified on surveillance video. The first is in his mid-20s. He's approximately 5' 10" with short brown hair, a mustache and goatee. He has a tattoo on his right arm. The second man is believed to be 30 years old. He's about six feet tall with short black or dark brown hair, goatee and mustache.
They may be in a blue minivan. A white, female driver with bright pink hair has been spotted driving. If you have any information, you're asked to call KSP at 502-532-6363.
