BRISTOW, Okla. – Authorities said a man walked into a Walmart, claimed to be an armored truck driver and convinced store employees to give him $75,000.

Newson6.com reported that it happened at a Walmart in Bristow, Okla. on Saturday after the man entered the store claiming to be there for a cash deposit.

The suspect was apparently disguised as an armored truck driver with a bullet proof vest and a gun.

Police said the real Loomis truck came to make a scheduled pick up about 30 minutes later, and that’s when employees realized their error.

The suspect is said to have walked off with more than $75,000 in cash. He’s said to be driving a newer model black Chevrolet Malibu.

Federal authorities are reportedly involved in the case because of the massive size of the theft. The investigation is ongoing.
