Winter Haven Police:
Slight of hand nets this guy an iPad and Apple Watch for $308.
He visits the electronics counter at Walmart (7450 Cypress Gardens Blvd) and requests the items from a locked cabinet.
He proceeds to produce all $20’s to pay for the merchandise. As the clerk counts out the cash, the man is able to slide money from the counter behind the bag. He then hands the clerk some of the cash back to make it appear he was giving the final amount when actually he kept $800. (The register was found to be short at the end of the day). It is reported that this same man wearing the same clothes did this at the Auburndale Walmart as well.
If you recognize this suspect, please contact the Winter Haven Police Dept. at 863-291-5736.
