Cash found in donated jacket

Staff at the Value Village thrift store in Abbotsford recently found a fistful of dollars – and then some – in a donated jacket, and police are trying to find the owner.

Const. Ian MacDonald said the jacket would have been dropped off at the store at 31970 South Fraser Way either on Nov. 21 or up until noon on Nov. 22.

Staff do not know if the item was deposited directly in their donation bin by the owner or by an organization that had collected items from numerous people.

MacDonald could not divulge the exact amount that was found.

"Suffice it to say, the owner would know the money was missing because we're not talking about a trivial amount," he said.

MacDonald said although there is a possibility the individual intended the funds as a donation, the more likely scenario is that the person forgot the cash was there.

The owner is asked to call Abbotsford Police at 604-859-5225 or drop by the department at 2838 Justice Way.

He or she must be able to provide a description of the jacket, the amount of money involved, and where on the jacket the money was stored.
