Police are searching for a man they say conned a bank out of more than $1,000 by asking a teller to make change for a series of bills.

According to a news release from the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office, investigators are currently seeking to identify the suspect in the quick change scam that was conducted at a Wells Fargo Bank Branch in Tabb.

According to police, the suspect approached the teller, asking the teller to break larger bills into smaller bills before confusing the teller by asking to change the denominations while the teller was counting the cash back to him.

The suspect has been connected to several other quick change scams, targeting banks from Richmond to Virginia Beach, police say.
