Did you lose your rent money?

The North Vancouver RCMP wants to know, after a Good Samaritan turned in an envelope stuffed with bills and marked “rent money” on Monday.

Mounties said a “local, very honest North Vancouver resident” found the cash in a shopping cart at a grocery store.

Officers aren’t saying how much money or what denominations turned up, nor the name of the story where it was found in order to help determine whether it belongs to anyone who tries to claim it.

If the rightful owner of the money comes forward and can name the location and the amount of money lost – the police would be happy to return the money to them, Cpl. Richard De Jong said in a news release.
