A patron at the McDonald's restaurant at the Post Road traffic circle told police last week that another customer took his car keys from the service counter and left.

A restaurant worker confirmed that an older, white, balding man, about 5 feet, 7 inches tall, had picked up the keys from the counter, put them in his pocket and departed. The man, however, did not steal the car that the keys are for, police said.

Police are reviewing video surveillance footage.
