A man who had his wallet stolen from the Darien YMCA had it returned later the same day by a Good Samaritan who found it at a mall, intact, but missing $200 in cash.

The incident took place around 11:50 a.m., Wednesday, Jan. 8, when the victim reported to Darien Police that their wallet had been stolen while taking a class at the YMCA, said Sgt. James Palmieri.
