NORTH Vancouver RCMP are hoping to find the owner of a large sum of cash turned in to the detachment’s front counter by a Good Samaritan over the weekend.
“We hope the rightful owner of the money will contact us,” said Sgt. Peter DeVries.
The envelope shown in the photo contained the cash when it was turned in to the detachment.
“The owner will need to tell us the amount of money that was in the envelope, the denominations, the currencies, and a reasonable explanation of when, where and how they lost it. And no, telling us the bills are rectangular, or that they’re in denominations of either $5, $10, $20, $50 or $100 won’t cut it!” he added.
RCMP are also asking people to refrain from contacting them and guessing in hopes of getting the cash.
“Last time we did this with valuables that were turned in to us, quite a few people contacted us claiming the valuables ‘might’ have been theirs when they actually weren’t,” said DeVries. “Please don’t do that. That would be unkind. It would also be fraud, which is a crime.”
The person who lost the money is asked to contact the North Vancouver RCMP at 604-985-1311 and quote file# 2020-24322.
