MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama state lawmaker says a man snatched his wallet in a Montgomery gas station and ran off with it.

Rep. Alvin Holmes tells WAKA-TV (http://bit.ly/MLYE9c ) that he was inside of a Citgo gas station on West Fairview Avenue Tuesday when a man grabbed his wallet in front of the cash register and fled on foot.

Holmes says he was getting change from the clerk when the man grabbed his wallet and ran. Holmes says his wallet contained about $300.

A store clerk says the store is equipped with a surveillance system.
