Did you accidentally leave behind a significant amount of cash in the 1000-block of Austin Avenue?

Coquitlam RCMP is asking the rightful owner to come forward.

Someone has left behind a large sum of cash in the 1000-block of Austin Avenue, in Coquitlam. An upstanding citizen found the cash and immediately turned it in to police, says Constable Deanna Law spokesperson for the Coquitlam RCMP. "The safest way to transfer large amounts of money is through your bank, either via secure e-transfer or with the help of a teller," says Constable Law. "If you have to carry cash, put it into a secure pocket with a zipper, split it up into smaller amounts in different bags or pockets so you don't lose all of it, and avoid repeatedly touching or checking on cash you are carrying."

When the right person does call the Coquitlam RCMP, they will need to answer specific questions to make sure we are returning the cash to the correct individual. The rightful owner of this cash must be able to provide information about the building where the money was found, the amount, specific denominations, what the cash was being carried in, and the date it was lost.

To reach the investigator and claim the found cash, please contact Coquitlam RCMP and reference file number 2022-13706.
