(AP) Police in three western Pennsylvania towns are looking for a man who pretends to be a basketball coach and scams McDonald's restaurants out of food and money using bad checks.
Police say the man drives up in a school-type bus and enters the restaurants ordering about $50 of food for his "team." The man then pays with a $150 check that appears to be from a school district and takes his food and his change, in cash.
The stores learned they were scammed when the checks bounced.
Police say it happened March 14 at McDonald's in Warren and Grove City and the next day in Titusville.
Police say Friday they have a suspect but haven't arrested anyone.
