Lexington Police said Tuesday that they had arrested an accused short change artist.

Investigators said Jeffrey John Ruby went in to at least ten different businesses, bought a small item and then tricked the cashiers into giving him more change than he was entitled to get.

Police said showing Ruby's image from surveillance video on local television newscasts was a factor in his arrest.

Ruby faces ten counts of theft.
