Dartmouth Value Village turns over money found in donated drapes
Police believe the drapes were donated sometime last month
Halifax Regional Police are trying to track down the person who dropped off a pair of drapes to the Value Village on Pleasant Street, along with thousands of dollars.
A Value Village manager confirmed to CBC News that an employee at the store made the surprising discovery.
The money was found hidden inside a bundle of folded drapes.
The manager said the employee was shocked, but followed policy by contacting police. The manager wouldn't release any more details.
Police say the money was in several sealed envelopes and was withdrawn in 2006 from a Guysborough County bank.
Using information in the envelopes, they reached out to the bank. But they couldn't identify the owner of the money because it was withdrawn so long ago.
Officers believe the drapes were donated sometime in January of this year in Nova Scotia, but say it's impossible to determine where the donation was made because Value Village buys donations in bulk.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 902-490-5016.
In order to claim the money, the person must be able to specify the amount of money and in what denominations, as well as the bank or bank account number.
