On March 27, 2015 at approximately 4:00 pm, a "short change scam" occurred when a black male and a black female entered Walmart located at 373 Benner Pike. The suspect male made a merchandise purchase with cash and purposefully deceived the cashier into returning improper change worth more than the merchandise itself. The accompanying female was seen after the suspect male in the checkout line making a purchase without any known deceptive means. Pictures of the suspect male and female were obtained to aid in identification.
We are urging anyone who may have information regarding this incident to contact the State College Police Department at (814) 234-7150, by email or submit an anonymous tip through our website.
