Milton police are looking for a man who entered a financial institution with $4,800 in $100 bills and left with even more money.

Police sent out a crime alert Monday with pictures of the man from surveillance video.

The man, who had a thick accent, entered the institution May 1 with the 48 new $100 bills and said he wanted to exchange them for fifties, according to the alert.

He distracted the teller and left with the 100s plus $2,250 in fifties he had palmed, according to the alert.

The man was described as dark complected with a chinstrap beard and no mustache.

“Based on his actions, it was unlikely this was the first time he has done this,” the alert states.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Milton Police Department at 608-868-6910, or email Chief Scott Marquardt at smarquardt@milton-wi.gov.
