Man wanted for 'quick change' thefts at Kroger stores in Gwinnett County

(Gwinnett County Police Department)

The Gwinnett County Police Department is working to identify a male that has been committing "Quick Change" thefts at various Kroger stores on the East Coast for the last 9 months.

GCPD says the man has defrauded two Kroger locations in Gwinnett County, specifically in Loganville and Grayson.

During one of the incidents, the man approached an employee at the Kroger store on Athens Highway and said he wanted to make a money transfer. He handed money to an employee who used a machine to count it. The total was $2,958. The man then said he did not want to make the transfer and the money was returned. The man then changed his mind again and handed the money back to the employee but did not give back the full amount of $2,958. The employee did not count the money again and filled out the money transfer paperwork.

The man also reportedly stole money from a Kroger store on LaVista Road. One the money transfers, the man used the name of "Henry Benjamin" of Florida as the sender and "James Dan" was the designated receiver.
