A man has been charged in the July 15 theft of a wallet at Dunkin' Donuts, 88 Elm St.
Lukasz Wysocki, 26, of 57 Balance Rock Road, Seymour, was arrested Sept. 2 on a charge of sixth-degree larceny.
The suspect was seen on the shop's surveillance video picking up a wallet that was left on the counter by the customer in front of him that morning and putting it in his pocket, according to police.
The 55-year-old victim forgot the wallet was on the counter and then sat down briefly before leaving the shop, police said. Wysocki then paid for his purchase immediately after the victim, which police said led to his identification through his credit card information.
The New Canaan wallet owner did not realize he didn't have the wallet until he returned home, according to the report.
The victim had about $80 in cash, debit cards, credit cards and his driver's license in the wallet, but Wysocki did not attempt to use any of the cards, according to the report.
After learning a warrant had been issued for his arrest, Wysocki turned himself at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 2. He posted $120 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 16.
