Lost Park City wallet returned to owner, without the cash

Someone lost a wallet in Park City on Wednesday before it was found outside the owner’s residence without the money inside, the Park City Police Department said.

The case was logged at 8:40 p.m. Phil Kirk, a police captain, said the wallet’s owner was at a Park City sporting goods store at 5 p.m. and then went to a meeting in Deer Valley. At 8 p.m., the man discovered he was missing his wallet when he was at home in Silver Springs.

Kirk said the man went back to the sporting goods store to look for the wallet and then returned to his residence. When he got home, the wallet was on the front porch, according to Kirk. The wallet contained identification with the owner’s address, the police said.

An undisclosed amount of cash was missing. Kirk said the rest of the wallet’s contents were still there. Kirk said it was not clear whether the person who returned the wallet is the same person who took the cash.

"It’s not very often this happens. We’re glad somebody returned his wallet," Kirk said.

He said the Police Department classified the case as a theft since the cash was missing when the wallet was found at the house. Kirk said the wallet’s owner did not indicate he had been the victim of a pickpocket, though.

People with information about the money may contact the Police Department at 615-5500 or the department’s tip line, 615-5847. The department also operates an online tip form, http://www.tipsubmit.com/WebTips.aspx?AgencyID=994.
