William Shatner’s lost wallet found at California fruit stand


It sounds corny, but William Shatner is grateful to some employees of a fruit stand in Gilroy, California.

The 91-year-old “Star Trek” icon recently lost his wallet at the B&T Farms fruit stand and was only found after workers noticed sitting in a tub of corn.

The actor reportedly bought four baskets of refrigerated cherries and $2 worth of corn.

“He paid for it before he got the corn and I assume he had his wallet in his pocket, in his shirt pocket,” said Gary Tognetti, owner of B&T Farms.

Tognetti was shocked to see what he described as Shatner’s “brown and bumpy and seemingly made of ostrich skin” purse.

Gilroy Police Officer Mark Tarasco told Tognetti that he would help get Shatner.

With the help of the Beverly Hills Police Department, Tarasco was able to contact Shatner’s agent in a few hours.

“They issued it through FedEx that Thursday and he had it Friday,” Tognetti said.
