Nanaimo RCMP are trying to track down the owner of a lost wallet – nothing unusual there, but the amount of cash inside is unusual.

So is how it was found.

It was sitting in a lost and found box at Columbia Bakery on Bowen Road along with the usual jumble of gloves, scarves and sunglasses.  There was no ID inside, but there was a “substantial” amount of cash.

Constable Gary O’Brien speaks for Nanaimo RCMP.

Noboby at the bakery remembers putting it in the lost and found, or noticing it before now.  They have figured out it must have been put there in December.

If it’s yours, or you know whose it is, call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345.
