A man reported his wallet was stolen at 6921 Lee Hwy at Kacy's Restaurant. He stated that he was eating in the restaurant and he pulled his wallet out of his pocket to pay the bill. 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 said he then placed the wallet back in his pocket and, when he went to the restroom, he said that he believes that the wallet may have dropped out of his back pocket there. He then left the restaurant and said that he was going to try to buy a vehicle with the $3,100 that he had left in his wallet.

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. He said that the wallet was a navy blue soft leather checkbook that only had cash in it. He said that there was $3,100 dollars in $100 dollar bills.
