The incident occurred around 9 pm on the Gloucester waterfront. The bird stole the wallet and carried it to it's nest on a nearby rooftop.

Two men were nearby stringing lights for a block party and used their bucket truck to distract the seagull and retrieve the wallet.

The seagull was not arrested.
