THAT is what North Vancouver RCMP are asking after they seized a significant amount of cash and rare coins from a male with no fixed address.
The monies were discovered on April 6 at about 11 p.m. in the Lower Lonsdale area of North Vancouver after the North Vancouver RCMP Strike Force observed a male acting suspiciously. The male was arrested for ‘trespassing at night.’
Police seized a large amount of cash along with a valuable coin collection of international origins from this 21-year-old male. The male also had a pair of bolt / lock cutters in his possession. When questioned by police, the suspect could not provide a lawful explanation of how and where he came to be in possession of the large amount of money.
“Investigators are certain that the monies are stolen, perhaps from a break and enter of a residence or business,” said Cpl. Richard De Jong. “Residents, not only of the North Shore, are encouraged to check the places they may hide their valuables to see if they are still there!”
If these monies are your property and you can provide accurate and specific details of the total amount, the police would be pleased to return them to you. Quote file number 2017-8001. By identifying the rightful owner of the money, it will assist the police in charging the suspect criminally with ‘possession of stolen property.’
