Money exchange scam reported

MANISTIQUE — The Michigan State Police Manistique Outpost has reported that several Schoolcraft County businesses were targets of a money exchange scam in recent weeks.

The suspects involved entered local gas stations and convenience stores where they attempted to confuse the attendants to break large bills into smaller bills, then confuse the attendants by asking multiple questions.

Police said the suspects stole several hundred dollars from multiple stores. The suspects were described as a heavy set Black male and Black female with green-colored hair. They were last seen driving a silver Buick with an unknown Ohio registration toward the Gladstone area.

Anyone with information regarding the alleged scam is asked to contact the Manistique Outpost at 906-341-2102.
