A Bayside man told police he had tried to lock his car, but when the auto-lock malfunctioned he just figured his wallet would be safe anyway while he coached a soccer game nearby.
The 34-year-old Bayside man came to the Fox Point Police Department around 8:15 p.m. on Oct. 1 to report his wallet was stolen.
He said he was coaching soccer in the 200 block of West Dean Road between 5:15 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. the day before, when someone went into his unlocked car and stole his wallet from the center console, the report said. The wallet had $15 cash, a zoo pass, a driver's license, a Chase Bank Visa credit card and a U.S. Bank Visa debit card, he said to police.

He went home and checked his online banking to see if either card had been used and discovered there was a charge made at 6:59 p.m. at an unknown CITGO gas station for an unknown amount, the report said. Another charge was made at 7:24 p.m. at a CITGO gas station in the 53208 Zip Code for an unknown amount. He cancelled both his credit cards.
He told police his wallet was left in plain view in between the front seats. As he walked away, he said he attempted to lock the doors via remote, however, it didn’t work. He said he figured his car would be safe anyway the report said.
Police are still investigating.
