Apparent scam artist operating in Hudson stores


A scam artist asking for gas money appears to be operating in Hudson stores.

Saturday morning, April 12, a young white man dressed in a Jimmy John's cap and jacket approached a woman in the Walgreens store on Carmichael Drive, saying he had run out of gas and needed to get to work or he would lose his job.

The man said a gas station had refused to allow him to use a gas can without a $20 deposit. He said he didn't have $20 and asked the woman for the money. She complied.
