Murphy’s USA, the small gas station right in front of Wal-Mart in Ponca City, lost a large amount of cash on May 27 in a fraud case.
Police are asking for assistance from the public to identify the woman pictured in the surveillance photo.
The on-duty employee received a telephone call from a man identifying himself as the Chief Financial Officer of Murphy’s. In the conversation, he told the employee that he and three other people from the office would be coming to the store to change the money out from the safe.
About an hour later a Caucasian female arrived at the store. She told the clerk that she was there for the money that was in the safe. About 10 minutes later, the clerk realized it was a scam and notified the Ponca City Police.
