Great Clips, 4228 Plank Rd and 5731 Plank Rd- On March 19th and March 20th 2011, two separate Great
Clips for Hair businesses were victims of a quick change scam. It appears that the same individual came into
the business and paid for products with $100.00 bill. While the cashier was providing change to the
Hispanic male, (about 5’9, and speaking broken English), distracted the cashier with a flurry of questions
and then produced smaller bills for the purchase. After producing the smaller bills it appears that he
requested and received his original $100.00 back from the cashier.
