The convenience of self-checkout at a Grand Junction grocery store became incredibly inconvenient for a shopper who took their groceries but left their wallet behind.

The inconvenience was caused by a man who took the forgotten wallet, not to the customer service counter to turn it in, but out of the store with his purchase. That's right, he stole it.

According to the Grand Junction Police Department and Crime Stoppers of Mesa County, the theft happened around 9:50 p.m. on Sunday, June 24 at the City Market store 630 24 Road.

Security cameras filmed a white male in his mid-twenties with brown hair remove the wallet from the top of the register. At the time of the theft, the man was wearing a printed black t-shirt and plaid shorts. The suspect was accompanied by a white female with green hair.
