Lexington Police say employees at the Avenue of Champions Qdoba got a call around 1:00 this morning from someone who said they were from the corporate office and told them to bring $1,000 to the Walmart on New Circle Road.

After an employee left with the cash, others who worked there thought something didn’t seem right and called police. Officers were able to get to the employee before the scammer got their hands of the money. If the suspect is caught, they’ll be charged with theft by deception.
