Pricey wallets, credit cards stolen at restaurant

A woman from West Bloomfield dining out in the 200 block of S. Old Woodward Avenue in Birmingham had two wallets stolen from her on the night of Saturday, July 29.

According to the woman, she went into the restaurant and set her wallet behind her on the seat when she sat down. She reportedly didn’t realize it was missing until about four hours later when she was ready to leave.

Inside the wallet, which was valued at $2,400, was another wallet valued at $300, her driver’s license and several credit cards that she later froze.

The next day, her license was found at a gas station in Birmingham after she received an email saying that purchases had been attempted at two different gas stations.

Birmingham police report an investigation is ongoing.
