Irate customer at Albany store

December 25, 2007

Albany - - Albany police are looking for a man they said tried to use bogus money at a store and then took off with an employee's cell phone. 

It happened at the Advanced Auto Parts Store on Oakridge and Radium Springs Rd. around 4 o'clock Monday.

Police say a black man in his mid to late 20's entered the store wearing all black clothing.

He tried to purchase a car battery charger and then presented the cashier with a $100 bill. The cashier realized it was fake and told him he couldn't accept it. That's when the customer got mad, went behind the counter, grabbed the cashier's cell phone, and ran out of the store.

Police arrived shortly after, but weren't able to find the man.

If you have any information, call Albany police or Crimestoppers at 229-436-TIPS.
