Suburban Police Seek Rightful Owner of Large Amount of Cash

Suburban police are searching for the rightful owner of a wad of cash that was turned in by a Good Samaritan.

Police in Prospect Heights say that a person turned in a significant amount of money that they found recently. Authorities did not offer many details on the money, including how much was found, or where it was found, in hopes that the rightful owner will have that information.

“I’m obviously withholding some information to ensure that we identify the correct person, if possible,” Police Chief Al Steffen told the Daily Herald.

 According to police, the rightful owner of the cash will be given a “reasonable amount of time” to claim it, and no deadline has been set.

Anyone with information is encouraged to visit the police station, or to call Deputy Chief Jim Zawlocki at (847) 398-5511.
