Money found floating around Vernon parking lot

A Good Samaritan is being praised.

On Tuesday, Vernon RCMP received a call from a woman who found about $2,000 in the parking lot of a business.

“She noticed the cash blowing around the parking lot and went around and did her best to pick it all up,” said Gord Molendyk, with the RCMP.

“The woman had to go to work so she left a message with the business and had contacted the police as well.”

The cash was accidentally dropped by the business owner.

It has now been retuned.

“The owners are very grateful for the honesty of this Good Samaritan,” said Molendyk.
