Letter: Thieves took advantage of momentary lapse

Dear Editor,

Two people stole my wallet at a Safeway store in Langley Sunday evening. They did not turn my wallet in to customer service.

I had stepped away for no more than 30 seconds before I returned to find my wallet gone.

I’m a senior who lives on a low income. This has placed a lot of stress on me.

They can still return it to Safeway or a post office with my license and other cards intact. They got around $40 and a now-cancelled credit card.

They could at least return my other cards and photos. The money, of course, is much needed, too.

I want to thank Safeway and the Langley police for their quick action. There luckily was a surveillance camera with the two thieves on the video.

I think they just took advantage of a situation, and hopefully, this is not a common action that they do.

J.P., Langley
