It didn’t take Sherlock Holmes to solve the case of the missing wallet, but some police questioning helped. A woman complained that she’d left her wallet at 7-Eleven on Norman Street, and when she went back for it, the clerk said she’d noticed the forgotten wallet and left it in a drawer under the register. But now it was gone. The owner of the wallet asked the owner of the store to look at videotapes. Somehow their exchange grew heated and “she was asked to leave,” according to the log at 11:01 a.m. Police obtained the names of the other clerks. One explained he’d seen the wallet “and put it in the manager’s office for safekeeping.” Which is exactly where it was located and returned to the owner. “All the contents of the wallet were there.”

A woman reported losing a wallet including bank cards and a $200 EBT card at the welfare office, as logged at 11:02 a.m.
