An 81 year old pensioner's had his wallet stolen after parking his car in a disabled bay at B&Q in Weymouth.
Police say it happened between 1.45 and 2pm on Saturday 25th January.
The man dropped his wallet and a member of staff from another shop at Jubilee Business Park claims they saw a man and woman pick it up - they said they would hand it in.
But the wallet never turned up.
The wallet is described as black leather and folds in half. It contained cash, gift vouchers, bank cards and personal items.

"I urge anyone with information about the whereabouts of the wallet, or those responsible for its loss, to come forward as soon as possible.
"Witnesses and anyone with information are asked to call Dorset Police in confidence on 101."
