DUNWOODY, Ga. — A woman was swindled out of $260 in cash Sept. 11 by a man posing as a store employee at the Z Gallerie Store in Perimeter Mall on Ashford Dunwoody Road. The woman told police that when she arrived at the store, she saw a man speaking with a female store employee. As the woman browsed the aisles, the man approached her and began removing items off the shelves, suggesting she use his employee discount to buy them.

The woman took some of the items toward the checkout counter, but the man suggested she give him the money before making the purchase at the counter. She handed him $260 in cash, and he left the store. The store manager confirmed that he had never seen the man in the store before. Surveillance cameras recorded the incident.
