SOUTH PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police are searching for two men who defrauded a deli cashier out of nearly $700.

It happened on Friday, May 2, around 7 p.m. at Gooey Louies Deli located at 231 McClellan Street in South Philadelphia.

Police say the two men entered the store. They soon picked out a soda and brought it up to the register.

The suspects gave the cashier a $100 bill to purchase the soda.

Police say as the cashier began to hand back the change, the suspects barraged the cashier with breaking larger bills into smaller.

They then made the cashier change those smaller bills into larger bills, police say.

After the suspects left, it was discovered that they defrauded the cashier out of nearly $700.

Police released surveillance video of the incident on Thursday.

Anyone with information on the suspects should contact South Detective Division at 215-686-3013/3014.
