They say he struck up a conversation about trust and religion then asked the victim to give him his car keys and $20.00. The victim complied and the suspect returned both.

Police say he then asked for the victim’s credit and debit cards. He never came back with those.

Instead, police say he used them at an ATM. He was captured on bank surveillance.
