Caught on tape: Man drops wallet, another steals it

FOLLY BEACH, SC (WCSC) - A man leaving a Folly Beach grocery store accidentally dropped his wallet and someone else picked it up and kept it and the cash that was inside of it.

The theft was caught on surveillance cameras and police hope someone will recognize the suspect.

According to police, the theft happened on New Year's Eve at the Piggly Wiggly on Folly Road.

The victim was leaving the store when he dropped his wallet and then a man wearing a hat and sweater walked by and instead of giving it back, he picked it up, and kept on going into the store.

Folly Beach police say there was quite a bit of cash in the wallet as well as bank cards, debit cards and a check.

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111. You don't have to give your name and may earn a cash reward.
