PETAL, MS (WDAM) -

Petal Police need the public's help in identifying a pair of suspects allegedly involved in a “Change Game” scam.

According to a release a pair of alleged con-artists swindled a local fast food cashier out of an excessive amount of cash during a fast food order transaction.

Petal police officials stated the incident occurred at Dickie's Bar-B-Que on Highway 42 in Petal, on Wednesday, Feb. 18.

The two suspects are described as two black males wearing dark colored clothing and white tennis shoes. One had on a white baseball cap and the other was wearing a dark toboggan style hat. The suspects left the scene in a large body silver Cadillac.

Officials referred to the scam as the “Change Game”, that involves one person presenting a large bill, then confuses the cashier into giving them money in various denominations, while the another person distracts employees.

According to police, the incident at Dickie's Bar-B-Que involved the two suspects purchasing a fountain drink, and then presenting the large bill to the cashier, while one of the two kept other personnel busy.

If you have any information regarding the incident contact Petal Police Detective Michael Stevens at 601-544-5331 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 601-582-STOP.
