Cheyenne police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man who's been trying to scam local businesses out of their money.

Police say the man has been calling stores claiming to be with the their corporate offices.

"He's telling people that the business is under audit, that some employees have been stealing and that he needs to perform an emergency audit," said Officer Kevin Malatesta.

Police say the man has actually gone to several stores trying to pick up their deposits for review.

Anyone who recognizes the man or knows his whereabouts is asked to contact Detective Fernandez at (307) 633-6638 or mfernandez@cheyennepd.org.
