It appears the change bandit has struck again.
Nova Scotia RCMP say on Thursday around 4 p.m., a man in Hantsport asked a worker for change for a $50 bill.
He then allegedly confused the clerk, and left the store with a coffee, the $50 bill and two $20 bills.
Police say the suspect matches the description in a similar incident that happened on Sept. 5 in Barrington Passage.
“Nova Scotia RCMP would like the public's assistance to locate and identify this person,” a statement Friday reads. “Employees who handle cash are reminded to be mindful and vigilant of this scam, particularly when individuals use larger bills or ask for change.”
