RIDGEWAY, N.Y. (WIVB) — Troopers out of Albion responded to Champs Mini Mart on Ridge Road in the Town of Ridgeway for a fraud complaint last Tuesday.
According to police, the suspect went into the store and bought $2 in lotto tickets and tried to pay with a $100 bill.
During the transaction, the suspect asked for different denominations of the bills for change.
Police say the suspect ultimately got $150 back.
He’s suspected with other law enforcement agencies throughout Niagara County for doing the same scam to cashiers.
