In September, Pantelis shared his Weekend Regret with a local radio station, Jack FM. Pantelis stated that the bundle of cash fell out of his pocket while he was furniture shopping for his daughter at IKEA in Coquitlam.

It was after the Coquitlam RCMP media release on November 14, 2022 that the connection was made between the Weekend Regret and Pantelis.

This is the outcome that we hoped for and are very pleased to see, said Media Relations Officer Corporal Alexa Hodgins. It’s really nice to see how the community came together to reunite Pantelis with his lost cash. Without the genuine integrity of the finder turning the money over to the police this ending would not be possible.

If you or someone you know has lost, found or had property stolen, please contact your local police station to file a report. To learn more information, please visit our website.
