Someone is missing a large amount of cash and Coquitlam RCMP is asking the rightful owner, and only the rightful owner, to come forward.
On Saturday, June 20, 2020, a man went into the Tim Hortons at 955 Austin Avenue, Coquitlam, and sat down. When the man departed, he left a bag behind that contained the cash.
It says a lot about our community that someone found this large amount of cash and immediately turned it over to police, says Corporal Michael McLaughlin with Coquitlam RCMP.
Before anyone calls, they should know we have security video of the man who left the money. When the right man does call us, he will need to answer specific questions to make sure we are returning the cash to the correct person.
The rightful owner must be prepared to describe the amount, denominations of the bills, and the brand of bag that contained the cash. This is also a good reminder that if you’ve ever lost a substantial portion of money, you can call police and make a report, says Corporal McLaughlin. It’s actually quite common for people to turn in cash and we’re happy to get it back to the rightful owner.
To reach the investigator and claim the cash from June 20, 2020, call the Coquitlam RCMP non-emergency number at 604-945-1550 and ask for Constable Andrew Krueger.
