Footage shows man stealing customer's wallet from Bakersfield FoodMaxx

A man is asking for help after he was the victim of theft at a Bakersfield grocery store.

Anthony Martinez said he was robbed at Food Maxx Wednesday afternoon.

The store is on the southwest corner of California and Union avenues.

Martinez realized he left the check stand without his wallet after paying for his purchases.

Food Maxx management showed him the surveillance footage that appears to show the man next in line grabbing the wallet and pocketing it.

Martinez said he is not mad; he just wants the person to do the right thing and return the wallet.
