Customers followed the man out and one tried to grab the wallet. The thief dropped the wallet and ran to a minivan and sped off. 2 women were in the van and there were 2 men involved in the heist. Police are still looking for the foursome.  A similar incident happened at Olive Garden on Youree Drive earlier this month. Police say you should make sure you keep your valuables very close to you and call police if you see anything suspicious.
