He is described as white, in his late teens and was wearing a hooded top with the hood up.

CCTV stills are attached of a man police would like to speak to in connection with this incident.

There is nothing to say he took the money, he may of found the wallet which was already empty and gave it in to the shop, and it would be very silly to steal the money and then hand in the wallet, I'm not sure they should be posting the picture of a good Samaritan on the strength of this, and perhaps the owner should take better care of his property.
