Rimbey RCMP get big cash back to owner

Honesty and Good Samaritan helped

Rimbey RCMP are quite happy with a successful effort to reunite a large amount of found money with its rightful owner on Wednesday.

The money was found on Feb. 21 by an employee in the washroom of a Rimbey business. Efforts to try and find the owner weren’t successful.

So on Monday, RCMP informed the public through media about the money in a further effort to find the owner. Police did not believe there was anything suspicious about the money. They did not say how much money was involved.

“Thanks to the efforts of our media partners, a 50-year-old lady from the area was alerted to the found cash and was able to properly identify the amount of cash and where and how it was left.

“This is a really successful community collaboration, starting with the honest actions of a Good Samaritan, to the support of the media agencies in getting our message out,” Sgt. Kurtis Pillipow.

“We are really happy with the outcome of this investigation.”

No doubt the owner of the money is too.
