DARLINGTON, SC (WMBF) Police in the Pee Dee are looking for the man they say asked an elderly gentleman to make a bank withdrawal and then walked away with his cash.

Kimberly Nelson, spokeswoman for the Darlington City Police Department, says the suspect entered the Carolina Bank on Orange Street on August 17 with an elderly gentleman and asked him to withdraw $4,000 from the bank.

That money, the suspect explained, would be placed into a safe at the Florence Walmart. Once they exited the bank, the suspect removed the money from the bank envelope and placed it into another envelope lined with paper towels.

It wasn't until the victim got home that he realized the money was missing. The victim told police the suspect was with another young gentleman, both of whom presented official looking badges.

The police department is asking anyone with information that would help identify the subjects to contact the police department at 843-398-4026 or 843-398-4028.
