On February 11, 2020, Troopers out of SP Albion responded to Champs Mini Mart on Ridge Road in the town of Ridgeway for a fraud complaint.  The pictured suspect goes into the store and buys a $2 in Lotto ticket and attempts to pay with a $100 bill.  During the transaction the suspect asks for different denominations of the bills for change, ultimately getting $150 back. The pictured black male is suspected throughout Niagara County with other Law Enforcement agencies of doing the same scam to cashiers. 

If you have any information on the identity of this suspect, contact the NYSP at 585-344-6200.
