Police responded about noon to the report of a theft in the parking lot of Whole Foods Market, 2100 E. Maple Road, Birmingham. The victim told officers she had set her purse down near the trash next to the entrance off of Maple Road and forgot to grab it when she walked to her car.
She returned a short time later and learned someone turned the purse into customer service. When she recovered the purse, the wallet was missing.
