A crew of four individuals apparently pulled a “quick change heist” about 7:30 Friday evening at the West Union One Stop.
Four individuals entered the store 7.6 miles west of Interstate 22, on the north side of Highway 30. Some of the individuals wandered around the store distracting the clerk while others made a small transaction.
Reports from law enforcement make it seem like a classic flim-flam scheme: someone asks for change of a large bill, then wants the money in different sized bills. Meanwhile associated crew member were making noise and otherwise acting to distract the store clerk, who became flustered.
The group is believed to have been traveling together in a late model white Chevrolet sedan and may have been from Alabama.
After the quick-change artists left the store, the clerk realized the amounts in the cash register weren’t right and called law enforcement.
The crew is believed to have gotten away with a few hundred dollars in cash.
