A wallet was reported stolen after two men helped a New Canaan man fix a car in his garage Sept. 1, according to police.
The 76-year-old complainant was working on the car on Heritage Hill Road in the afternoon when two males driving a black Chevrolet Tahoe or Suburban pulled into his driveway and offered to help, police said.
The resident accepted the offer and the men fixed the issue with the car, so the complainant gave each $20, according to the report.
When the man's son arrived home, he started looking for his wallet, which was left on the driver's side door compartment of the vehicle his father was working on, police said.

The victim could not find his wallet, which is valued at $250 and contained a $100 bill as well as several credit cards and his driver's license, the report stated. Police said the cards have been canceled and no activity has been reported.
The suspects were described as two men in their 30s wearing "clean white shirts," police said. One of them was about 6 feet 2 inches tall and had a mustache while the other was about 6 feet tall, according to police.
The investigation is ongoing.
