Wad of cash found in Big Brothers clothing donation

Did you happen to donate a lot more than clothing to Big Brothers recently?

Coquitlam RCMP are looking for the rightful owner of a “large sum of cash” found in a wallet donated to Big Brothers recently.

On Feb. 6, employees at a Value Village store in Coquitlam were surprised to find a large sum of cash in a wallet among a clothing donation.

The donations were collected from more than 900 homes in the Coquitlam, Langley, Chilliwack, White Rock and Richmond areas.

“There is no identification in the wallet. We don’t know if someone had accidentally left it in the clothing donation,” said Cpl. Jamie Chung. “For obvious reasons, we are not disclosing how much money was found and would like to speak to the owner of the property.”

The Coquitlam Mounties urge the owner of the cash to immediately contact Const. Kat Blach at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2013-3608.

“Keep in mind that we have to turn the money over to the Receiver General after 90 days from the date it was found. If you think you are the owner of the wallet, it is important for you to contact us as soon as possible,” added Chung.
