MOULTRIE, Ga. — A Moultrie woman appeared fortunate on Thursday when employees at a Moultrie business found her wallet, but she then discovered that it was lighter by $300.

Tilisha Dennis, 26, was shopping at the store in the 600 block of Veterans Parkway South when she realized upon reaching the register that her wallet was missing, she reported to Moultrie police.

When she retraced her steps she saw two employees, one male and one female, and heard one of them say, “I won’t tell if you won’t tell.” Dennis told police that when she asked about her wallet they told her that they had found it in another area of the store.

Dennis returned to the cash register where, when trying to make her purchase, she discovered that the $300 was missing.
