Darien police have seen a surveillance video showing a man taking a wallet that a customer left on a counter at Whole Foods Market, but they haven’t been able to identify the thief.

At 7:05 p.m. on Monday, June 5, a 31-year-old Norwalk man told police, he accidentally left his brown, Nautica brand wallet on a counter at the supermarket.

In the wallet were his driver’s license, a debit card, business cards and other personal papers, along with $300 in cash. He quickly returned to the counter when he realized he had left the wallet behind, but it was gone.

That’s because at 7:09 p.m., according to video surveillance records, four minutes after the wallet had been left on the counter, another man can be seen taking it.

Does This Description Ring a Bell with You?

Based on the video, police describe the suspected thief as a white male, about five feet, eight inches in height, with a medium build, wearing light blue or khaki shorts, black sneakers and a hooded sweatshirt with green and white strips over a black T-shirt.

He was with a white female with dark hair, wearing blue pants, a black jacket, black shoes, and carrying a large black purse.

The man bought items with cash before leaving the store. Several minutes after taking the wallet, the man left the building.

Police just don’t know who he is.
