The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the identity of the individual pictured. On April 16, 2018, the suspect entered Buffalo Wild Wings, located on Lexington Village Way, in Lexington Park, and presented the employee with a $100 bill to purchase a small item. While the employee was conducting the transaction, the suspect presented the employee with additional change, and was able to remove the $100 bill from the counter. The suspect ultimately left the business with the initial $100 as well as change for the $100. The suspect had also used this scam earlier at another business in St. Mary’s County.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect is asked to contact Dep. Tyler Payne at (301) 475-4200 extension *8010, or by email at Tyler.Payne@stmarysmd.com.
