The Marshalltown Police Department would like to notify local businesses and the general public that we have received two complaints of a possible "Quick Change Scam" that occurred within the City of Marshalltown on December 3rd and December 8th at two area businesses.
A description of the suspect has been obtained and is given as a black male suspect wearing a black jacket and eye glasses. The suspect is approximately 6'0" to 6'2" tall, approximately 180-200 lbs and approximately 30-40 years of age. The suspect approached a cashier to make a purchase and then began asking to "trade" bills, typically either $50.00 or $100.00 bills, at which time the suspect was able to gain monitarily before leaving the business. An undisclosed amount of cash was reportedly taken by the suspect. Both cases are currently under investigation.
The Marshalltown Police Department is currently looking for help in identifying a possible suspect involved in this "Quick Change Scam". If anyone has information regarding the identity of the subject seen in this photo, please call the Marshalltown Police Department at (641)754-5725.
