Scam artist cut short on loot

A white male posing as an employee for the electric company scammed a local citizen last week, but only received half of his loot.

The man conned cash and a check from a local. He then proceeded to her bank to cash the check. The teller happened to be victim’s daughter-in-law. When questioned, the man became nervous and left the bank without obtaining more cash. For more about this and other incidents handled by law enforcement, see the December 12 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
