ORANGEBURG, SC (WCSC) -

Orangeburg County sheriff deputies are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect who refunded a woman's appliance and pocketed the cash for herself.

Deputies say the incident occurred at Lowe's in Orangeburg on January 5. After a Smoaks woman purchased a stove and refrigerator, the suspect later went to a register and canceled the order for the stove.

According to a release, the store refunded the suspect $826.84 in cash.

The victim was informed the stove was refunded when Lowe's employees delivered the refrigerator to her home on January 11.

If you have any information on the suspect's identity, call Investigations at 803-534-3550.
