Quick change theft usually occurs during a transaction when the suspect pays for a small-priced item with either a large bill or as the cashier is giving the suspect change back, the suspect then makes another request to exchange some larger bills for smaller ones. During the transaction, the suspect then confuses the cashier or causes a distraction and ends up leaving with more cash than they were owed.
Officials said the suspect has been committing these thefts over the last nine months at multiple Kroger locations along the east coast.
The suspect was seen in two Kroger locations in Gwinnett County in Loganville and Grayson.
