SAN ANTONIO -- Officers are searching Monday morning for an armed robbery suspect who they say left behind a big piece of evidence: his wallet.

Investigators said the man walked into the Planet K Texas in the 5600 block of Evers Street just before midnight on Sunday and threatened the clerk with a gun. The clerk handed over some cash, although the suspect didn't stuff it in his wallet.

Instead, police said the suspect hastily took off on foot, accidentally dropped his wallet in the adult novelty store.

Authorities searched the man's apartment and several vacant apartment with police dogs, but were unable to find the suspect. The man's parents told officers they haven't seen him in months.

Two witnesses were taken downtown for questioning.

Investigators said the suspected robber has warrants out for his arrest for armed robbery and burglary of a vehicle.
