The Wayne Police Department is looking for help identifying a man caught on tape stealing a wallet from a Dunkin Donuts customer, the township tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

According to the tweet, the man was seen on video stealing a wallet from a woman at the Dunkin in the Wedgewood Plaza on Hamburg Turnpike. The incident occurred at 6:48 p.m. on Sunday, it said.

A young girl had left the wallet on the counter while bringing a tray of drinks to a table, NorthJersey.com reported. The man can be seen picking up the Coach wallet, thumbing through it, and quickly placing it in his pocket, the report said.

The wallet contained $200 and no credit cards, the report said.

Anyone with information about the man is asked to call the Wayne Detective Bureau at 973-633-3530.

“Any information would be greatly appreciated,” it said.

Justice is clearly a man, as are all of those who post regularly. Women wouldn't waste their time with such petty topics and minutiae. This was a weird thread, almost like Justice created an argument out of nothing to extend the conversation. There was no selective enforcement here. Many of us have lost or had stolen small valuables. Without a lead, the cops tell you up front that the chances of recovery are remote. It's obvious that the key fact difference here is the video. That is all. I bet the cops STILL don't find the man or the wallet, despite having a good lead. I hope I am wrong. All this bickering is disheartening. Justice, you did pique my curiosity though: which revolutions were started by wealthy people? Do you mean cultural revolutions or actual war/governmental overthrow type revolutions? Might be an interesting topic to discuss in the absence of real news. WSJ reported that Patch is a major disappointment to Time Warner and was recently drastically reduced. That much seems obvious from the huge drop-off in content here. A shame. I enjoyed Stu's cartoonish perspective on inane subjects. Plus, it was good to get important local topics in the news - like BOE and town council stuff. That's already sorely lacking.

Wayne, well said regarding the patch issue and lack of good content and local news. As we know, Dan was recently fired, and Jessica, though I am sure is good, is now responsible for multiple Patch sites.

Bottom line, he took what wasn't his and didn't give it to the workers at DD so when she realized it was gone she could get it back. He will get what is coming to him, Karma, nothing is for free!

...... seems the difference in the cloth vs. coach wallet theft is simply ..surveillance. R we to assume one who owns a cloth wallet is not rich and/or one who owns a coach wallet is? Perhaps the wallet was a gift and the $200 was work-related savings. That is of course if the coach wallet wasn't a fake. I've given wallets w/$50 to family as a gift.I'm not rich.

This man should be easy to find. Probably a local. Some good detective work is in order. Camera's in the lot might see him get into a car and show a plate number. Anyone who steals is a thief no matter how its done.
