PASCO, Wash. – Police investigators are looking for two men accused of deceiving a clerk during a bank transfer at the Walmart Supercenter on Route 68 on Wednesday, April 27, 2022.

According to a social media alert from the Pasco Police Station, the two men pictured in security camera footage are said to have walked into the Walmart for a wire transfer. One of the gentlemen handed $5,300 to the cashier, who counted and confirmed the amount.

However, the men asked to recount the money to make sure it was the right amount. When they returned the money to the suspect pictured in a blue Levis t-shirt and dark pants, the suspect allegedly removed $2,300 from the bottom of the pile using a sleight of hand technique.

This example was captured on security camera footage, but Pasco police officials say the cashier didn’t bother to recount the money after it was returned. Instead, the wire transfer was completed with $2,300 cash missing from the intended deposit.

Now Pasco police are asking the community for help in identifying the two men involved in this incident. The second suspect was photographed wearing a dark blue/black short-sleeved button-up shirt with a tan vest, blue jeans and a pair of black sunglasses on the day of the incident.

Anyone with information to provide is asked to contact Pasco Police through the non-emergency dispatch line at 509-628-0333. They ask that you cite case #22-022593 when you call or email Agent Cody Stamper at [email protected]

In the colorful social media alert, Pasco police officers jokingly referred to the suspects as “Siegfried and Roy”.
