Fergus Falls Police would like the public’s help in finding a man who jumped over a counter at M State and stole a cash tray containing $1,400 Thursday.
The man allegedly hopped a counter near the bookstore where students could sell their books back when the attendant briefly stepped away from the cash at about 2 p.m. The money belongs to a company that was operating the buy-back service.

The suspect is described as an African American man in his late 20s or early 30s. He was wearing light blue jeans, a black and gray sweatshirt and a black hat with a bright red brim.
