GREENWICH — A local man working out at a gym in Old Greenwich got a surprising text after he finished his exercise routine Wednesday afternoon.

The man’s credit-card company had reported that someone had tried to use his credit card in Stamford, while he was at the gym. The fraudulent charge was declined.

The man found that his car, a 2012 Honda Accord, had been broken into near the Edge Fitness Center, the window smashed. His wallet had been taken, according to the police report.

A similar wallet theft was reported in another shopping center last week

. “It was a crime of opportunity,” said police Lt. John Slusarz, “Don’t leave your valuables in your car, especially where people can see them.”
