AUGUSTA, Ga-- A suspected con-artist is in the Richmond County jail.

Tyrone Reid was arrested Friday during a traffic stop in Augusta.

He's a suspect in several cases of flim-flamming. That's a type of fraud where he asked for change for a large bill, then confused the clerk, and was given more money than he's supposed to get.

He is wanted in several counties, including Aiken and Edgefield. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
