While the sketch provided appeared amateurish, police say, it helped jog the memory of at least one investigator, who was able to provide Nguyen's name as a suspect. Police showed the witness a photo array, and the witness identified Nguyen as the person who pretended to be the standholder and took the money.

Nguyen was charged with two counts of theft by unlawful taking, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Police checked Nguyen's last known address, but he was not located.
