"Last Wednesday, in Gilroy, 91-year-old legendary "Star Trek" actor William Shatner lost his wallet while shopping at the Fruit Barn, a decades-old side-of-the-road market located at 2918 Pacheco Pass Highway, according to ABC7.

Shatner reportedly bought four baskets of cherries and $2 of corn.

"I thought about putting a sign up, 'William Shatner was here,'" Gary Tognetti, owner of B&T Farms, told ABC7 in jest.

Tognetti then enlisted the help of his friend Officer Mark Tarasco, of the Gilroy Police Department, to contact Shatner to return his wallet. Tarasco turned to his friend, Sgt. John Ballard, also of the Gilroy Police Department, and asked him, “Hey, how do I get a hold of a celebrity?”

After two hours, the police officers were able to contact Shatner’s agent, who gave them the actor’s address so they could return the wallet via FedEx that night.

Shatner took to Twitter on Tuesday to thank Tognetti, Tarasco and Ballard for their kindness in returning the lost item. “They are obviously good citizens,” Shatner wrote.

The Canadian actor is known mostly for his portrayal of James T. Kirk in the original "Star Trek" series. He also played Denny Crane, a pompous lawyer, in the comedy series "Boston Legal."

As Captain Kirk might say, “Boldly go where no man has gone before — but don't forget your wallet.” (visit link)
