A man's wallet was stolen by an unlikely thief last week in Massachusetts.
According to The Associated Press, the man was walking down Main Street in Gloucester on Friday when a seagull swiped his wallet, which was sitting on top of a pizza box he was carrying.
The gull retreated to a nearby rooftop, where volunteers were able to get the man's wallet back from the plumed pickpocket using a bucket truck.
Gloucester Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken shared more details about the incident, complete with photos, on her Facebook page Friday night.
