Lose something? A shopper found a wallet at the Hollywood Plaza Kroger and turned it in, but employees told police they thought it contained drugs, Wednesday.

Runner: A resident in the 1200 block of Pennsylvania Avenue told police a man was going door-to-door begging for money, and at one point tried to break into someone’s vehicle, Wednesday.

He said when he confronted the man, he fled. An hour later, a man matching that same description was said to be asking people for money in front of Maryland Market despite being banned from the premises. As police approached, he fled through the alley, and when officers spotted him in the 1400 block of Maryland Avenue, he took off running again. Witnesses reported seeing him first in the 1200 block of Pennsylvania Avenue, then cutting through yards to Ridge Avenue and finally running toward the 500 block of Union Avenue, where he managed to lose them.
