    A man pretended to be an employee of a stand inside Central Market, then stole an undisclosed amount of cash and fled Jan. 30, according to Lancaster City Police Department

    A detailed description and sketch provided by witnesses was enough for a veteran investigator to recognize the “amateurish and cartoonish” drawing Wednesday as Hung Phuoc Nguyen, according to police.

    A witness also recognized Nguyen from a photo array, police said

    Nguyen, 44, was charged with two counts of theft by unlawful taking. A warrant was issued for his arrest.
