JPD seeks to identify woman who took wallet

The Jackson Police Department is attempting to identify the woman who picked up and apparently kept a man's wallet she found at a local grocery store. Police say the incident occurred at 4:28 p.m. Tuesday, June 1, at the Jackson Kroger store at 530 E. Main St. Charles H. Hughes, Jr. of 301 Triumph St., Jackson paid for groceries at one of the self-checkout stations, but left with his wallet still laying on the register. The wallet contained $370 in cash and other personal cards. Video surveillance revealed that a woman using that self-checkout station a short time later picked up the wallet and attempted to hand it to a man who was with her, but he appeared to refuse to take it. She then placed the wallet in her bag of groceries and they left the store together.
