BRISTOW, Okla. – Authorities said a man walked into a Walmart, claimed to be an armored truck driver and convinced store employees to give him $75,000.

According to KOKI, the man pretended to be a Loomis employee there to collect the store’s bank deposit.

Police say the Walmart employees believed the man because he was apparently dressed as an armored truck driver.

He did not use a weapon or threaten the employees, police told KOKI.

The man was last seen driving away in a black Chevrolet.

Police said the real Loomis truck came to make a scheduled pick up about 30 minutes later, and that’s when employees realized their error.

Bristow police and the FBI are now working to find the suspect.

If the man is caught and convicted, he could face 20 years in prison.
