A female Evanston resident reported that her wallet had been stolen at Whole Foods in south Evanston, police said.

The 46-year-old resident noticed that her brown leather wallet had been stolen when she tried to pay for her items at about 2 p.m. on Tuesday in the grocery store, 1111 Chicago Ave., Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. Dugan said the woman who is suspected to have stolen the wallet was wearing a bright red wig, green hat and black coat.

The woman’s wallet contained three credit cards, her driver’s license and $140 in cash. One of her credit cards was then used at the same Whole Foods at 2:30 p.m.

The resident reported the other woman had bumped into her a few times when she was shopping, Dugan said. He added video footage has been turned over to detectives.
