Halifax Regional Police has located the owner of money found earlier this month in Dartmouth.
At 3:15 p.m. on August 7, a woman was at the Esso gas station, Wyse Road and Nantucket Avenue, when she came upon a sum of money outside and contacted police.
A citizen contacted Halifax Regional Police to advise she saw a post on social media of a man who had lost money. Police contacted the man who confirmed he had lost a sum of money in the above noted area on August 7. He was able to provide the correct denomination of the money and additional information was obtained which allowed officers to verify the validity of his claim. The owner has been instructed to attend Police Headquarters with identification and his money will be turned over to him.
Halifax Regional Police extends our sincere thanks to the woman who found the money and turned it over to police so it could be returned to the rightful owner. We also thank the media and the public for their assistance in this matter.
