FOLEY, Ala. (WALA) -- They're calling him a con artist. Foley Police releasing surveillance images of a man who walked into a Foley area bank January 24th and performed a "quick change" scam and made off with some cash.

So what's a "quick change" scam? -- They're usually performed at convenience stores, where the suspects pay for low cost items with large bills. While the cashier is making change -- the suspect will distract them with conversation, then ask for the change in different denominations. Confusing the cashier and ending up with more money than they originally paid with.

Quick change scams usually involve two suspects -- in this case it was only one. The suspect is described as being 30-40 years old, heavy build, average height, brown hair and beard.

If he looks familiar give Foley Police a call 251-943-4431.
