Columbia County authorities are looking for two men they say scammed Walmart cashiers out of money two consecutive days.
Two men confused cashiers at the store on Steiner Way in Grovetown and walked out with $225, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident report.
The store loss prevention employee told deputies that on Tuesday, one of the men – a black, bald, heavy-set man about 6 feet tall in his 40s – purchased a bottle of water or soda and paid with a $100 bill, according to the report. He then asked for different change several times to confuse the cashier. He walked out with $100.
The second man – a black man in his 30s, about 5-feet-8-inches tall, with a heavy build – acted as a lookout, according to the report.
On Wednesday, the pair pulled a similar transaction and left with $125.
Store staff alerted other area Walmart store management about the scam.
Anyone with information about the identity of whereabouts of the two men should call the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 541-2800.
