Man arrested after allegedly stealing wallet from counter of Ann Arbor party store
An Ypsilanti man is in custody for allegedly swiping a wallet from an Ann Arbor party store counter Thursday evening, police said.
Ann Arbor police were dispatched to Busters West, located at 695 South Maple Road, around 5 p.m. for the theft.
The wallet, which belonged to the customer in front of the man in line, looked "filled with money," to the suspect, said Ann Arbor police Sgt. Paul Curtis.
"It was a crime of opportunity," he added.
The Ypsilanti man, who police described as in his early 20s, fled the scene, but was arrested soon afterward in the 800 block of South Maple, Curtis said.
He currently is lodged in the Washtenaw County Jail facing a charge of larceny from a person. He is expected to be arraigned Friday.
