The Jenny Lind Express convenience store in Jenny Lind was struck by a short change artist. The owner of the store reported two individuals (an African American male and an African American female) came into the store. An initial purchase was made with a $50 bill for a soft drink. The clerk made the change.
The man began to ask for other monies to be exchanged and by the time the man was done $650 was missing from the store cash register. The two left the store in an unknown direction in silver Cadillac SUV.
The store owner reported she also owns a store near Moffett, Oklahoma and a similar event occurred there as well recently.
