Police seek owner of cash turned in Saturday in Oak Bay

‘Large amount of money’ found near library

Oak Bay Police seek the owner of a sum of money turned in over the weekend.

On Sept. 30 the Oak Bay police were called about a large amount of money found near the Oak Bay branch of the Greater Victoria Regional Library.

“We have reason to believe the person was dropping off library books and inadvertently lost their money,” said Oak Bay Police Deputy Chief Ray Bernoties.

While he wouldn’t provide specifics, Bernoties said the amount is less than $1,000. “We appreciate the staff at the library calling us and turning this money in and we hope the owner will contact us soon,” Bernoties said.

To claim the money, contact Oak Bay Police Department at 250-592-2424 with details.
