Cash left in donated items

Another case of cash left inside a piece of clothing donated to a local charity, this time in West Kelowna.

An employee at a thrift shop contacted RCMP back in June, after finding a sum of cash and an old debit card inside a donated item of clothing.

The card didn't have a name to identify the owner.

“Our investigators immediately followed up with the financial institution who issued the bank card, with negative results,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.

“As a last ditch effort, police are hoping the rightful owner will come across this story in the media and be able to prove they are the rightful owner. That person should be able to describe the donated clothing item to police, identify the total amount of cash they had left inside that item and confirm both the name of the financial institution, and the number of their expired bank card.”

A similar scenario in Kelowna earlier this month had a happy ending when the owner of a donated item was reunited with his money.

If you believe you are the owner, you're asked to contact West Kelowna RCMP at 250-768-2880, and cite file 2018-36164.
