The Tuscaloosa Police Department is asking for help identifying a man who is accused of swiping $5,000 cash that a customer left on the counter of a gas station on Greensboro Avenue earlier this month.

In a bizarre Facebook post Wednesday afternoon, a TPD spokesperson said the victim was buying something on the night of June 13th at the Quick Mart at 3701 Greensboro Avenue.

The customer reportedly put a $5,000 wad of folded cash on the counter when he ran into some friends inside the store.

The group stepped outside and talked in the parking lot, when another man apparently noticed the money, grabbed the cash and walked out of the store.

The theft was captured on surveillance footage, and TPD has released several images of the suspect on Facebook.

Anyone with information about the theft or the identity of the suspect is asked to call TPD at 205-349-2121 or submit a tip to CrimeStoppers at 205-752-7867.
