BRISTOW, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma and federal authorities are searching for a man who they saw walked off with more than $75,000 after tricking Wal-Mart employees into thinking he was an armored truck driver.

Bristow Police Detective Kevin Webster says the suspect entered the Wal-Mart around 10:30 a.m. Saturday dressed similarly to a Loomis armored transport employee. He says the suspect strolled to the cash office, signed for the deposit and casually walked out of the store.

Wal-Mart employees called police after the real Loomis employee arrived about 45 minutes later.

A video surveillance camera captured images of the suspect and his car, a dark four-door Chevrolet.

Webster says the Federal Bureau of Investigation is assisting officers with the case.

Bristow is located about 30 miles southwest of Tulsa.
