TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) — Police in Tonawanda are looking for three people suspected of scamming Family Dollar clerks out of hundreds of dollars via gift cards.
It happened at the store on Niagara Street over the weekend, they say. According to police, the three people pictured above are suspected of having clerks “load” cards with specific dollar amounts before confusing the clerks.
