Police Scotland officers in Edinburgh are investigating an incident during which a shop in Edinburgh’s city centre was defrauded of a four-figure sum of money.
The incident occurred at a shop at Lawnmarket on Sunday 13th April 2014. The suspect entered the store and chatted with members of staff there before asking them to exchange notes of smaller denomination for notes of a high denomination.

Using distraction and confusion techniques, the suspect then obtained more money from members of staff than he handed over.
Officers have now have released a CCTV image of a man who they believe can assist with their enquiries.
He is described as white, between 5ft 7in and 6ft tall, around 30 years of age, of slim build and with black hair. At the time of the incident, he was dressed in a black shirt and grey trousers.

Officers would like to speak to the man pictured in the CCTV image, and anyone who recognises him or may have information about the incident is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or, alternatively, phone Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.
