Old wallet mystery solved

A wallet unearthed in a Saanich park on March 10 has made its way back to its owner, Victoria police say.

The red wallet, with identification dating back more than 30 years, was discovered during an invasive species clean up in Bruce Hutchison Park. It was turned over to police, who tracked down the owner.

While the identification likely made the task easy – found in the wallet were a social insurance card and an old student ID card for Oak Bay senior secondary, VicPD utilize a number of tools to return lost or stolen items to owners, including VicPD’s ‘Is This Yours?’ Pinterest board and the ‘Found’ section of UsedVictoria.com.
