Police seek tie-wearing grocery store scammer

NORTH COLLEGE HILL, OH (FOX19) -

The suspect, often wearing a dress shirt and tie, has been caught on security cameras in North College Hill, Montgomery, Maineville, Colerain Township, West Chester, Liberty Township and Florence since June.

The man grabs merchandise off store shelves, takes it to customer service counters and then requests to return the items, North College Hill Detective Daniel Fritz said of the scam.

The suspect is described by police to be approximately 35-years-old, 160 pounds and “well groomed.” In the North College Hill offense he was wearing a white dress shirt, tie, light color dress pants and dark shoes.
