WEST HARTFORD -- Police are warning local stores to watch out for two men who last week scammed Shaws, Whole Foods and Wild Oats markets out of $1,200 in cash.The two men, possibly driving a silver Ford Taurus, stole $400 from each of the food stores Friday, carrying out a deception involving a request to exchange small bills for larger ones, police said.

"Hopefully the businesses will keep an eye out for these guys and give us a call if they see anything like this," Capt. Lori Coppinger said Monday...........
