Saline police are warning the local business community to be on the lookout for a woman who scammed a business out of money Friday.
According to the police report, the woman entered a downtown Saline business asking for the owner to exchange four $10 bills for two $20 bills. The owner agreed, made the transaction and the woman turned to leave the business before stopping and telling the owner he had only given her one $20 and one $1 bill, according to the report.
The owner apologized and exchanged the $1 bill for another $20 bill and the woman left the store, the report stated. Later on, the owner counted down the cash register and realized there was $20 less than there should have been in the drawer.
The owner told police the woman was white, in her late 40s or early 50s, about 5-feet tall and weighed about 110 pounds. She was wearing a light blue shirt, white capri pants and drove away in a small blue car.
Anyone who believes they may have been a victim of this scam or has information on the woman is encouraged to call Saline police at 734-429-7911.
