File # Oceanside RCMP 2022-1456

A large amount of cash was located in a charity donation item at the Parksville Salvation Army thrift shop located at 109-192 Island Highway West in Parksville.


On February 15, 2022 Salvation Army thrift shop employees located a large amount of cash within a donation item made on the same date. The thrift shop believes the cash may have been inadvertently left in the item and has turned the money into police.

If you donated an item to the Salvation Army thrift shop and unknowingly left cash within the item, please contact the Oceanside RCMP. Any person wishing to claim the cash must be able to provide identifying details confirming ownership, says Sergeant Shane Worth of the Oceanside RCMP.
