Wallet stolen on east side of campus

OU officers responded to a call that a construction worker had recovered his own stolen wallet but about $510 was missing from inside at 8:15 p.m. April 30.

He said that he and a fellow worker were working on the roof of a restaurant.  It began to rain, so he took his coworker home.

During the ride to the coworker’s home, the construction worker realized that his wallet was missing.  After dropping the coworker at his house, he returned to the construction site to look for his wallet because he said he had a “funny” feeling.

He found his wallet in some bushes about 10 feet inside a wooded area at the corner of Mansion Drive and Pavilion Drive.

He believes his coworker is the suspect.
