He said that he gave the clerk a wet $100 bill because his wallet was put through the washer and all the bills were still wet.

He then got back into the vehicle and drove back to the restaurant. He checked the bathroom and the wallet was not anywhere to be found. He was told there was a party that was in the restroom but was unsure if that person took the wallet or not because this was an hour after he left the business.
