A shopper at a Wal-Mart in Falmouth made a mysterious find on the shelves Saturday night: a wallet with a collection of human teeth in it, police said.
The man was shopping at the Teaticket Highway store just after 9:30 p.m. when he found the 10 teeth in a zippered compartment of a wallet, said Kimberly Pacheco, a clerk at the Falmouth Police Department. The teeth were determined to be from an adult; one of them had a filling, police said.
The customer brought the wallet to the attention of a sales clerk but left the store without giving his name. Police said they cannot perform DNA tests on the teeth because there was no blood or gum tissue attached.
Falmouth Police hope the customer comes forward so they can ask him questions for more information.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Falmouth Police Detective James Pires at 508-457-2527.
