The Harford County Sheriff’s Office says a man they were originally seeking information about for a potential theft of a wallet from a Wawa store made several attempts to return the property to its owner.
The wallet is now back with the owner after the man in a photo the sheriff’s office circulated on social media gave it to a deputy, Kyle Andersen, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said Friday morning.
“UPDATE: We have confirmed that the individual in the picture made attempts to return the wallet to the owner and this case is closed with no charges,” according to an updated to the original post on the sheriff’s Facebook page. “For anyone else who might find themselves in a similar situation, you can always call us and let us do the searching.”
A customer accidentally left a wallet on the counter at the store, located in the 1500 block of Churchville Road, around 6 p.m. Dec. 12, according to police. When the person returned to the store, the wallet was gone.
Deputies were called to the store just after 7 p.m. that same night. Police obtained photographs of an individual who was seen taking the wallet and leaving the Wawa, which it circulated on social media earlier this week.
