S, D and G - Oct. 14, 2011 - Over the past few days, SD&G OPP has received two reports of suspected scams.

The incident consists of a female entering a local store and speaking with the employee at the cash register.

After a short time three to four more people come into the store and start asking the employee questions about the merchandise that is for sale.

When the employee is distracted a member of the group goes behind the counter or into a storage area looking for cash or valuables.

SD&G OPP want to remind merchants to be aware of this possible scam and to not to be distracted. If more than one person starts to engage in questions advise them to speak one at a time and be firm as to where they are allowed to go in the store.

If any merchant experiences this type of incident please take note of the description of the criminals and what type of vehicle they are using and call your local police detachment.
