A Lloyd Center shopper made a startling discovery at the mall Thursday: a whole bunch of money.
The person who found the money, however, had no intention of keeping it. Officers said the Good Samaritan turned the "significant sum" over to police with the hope that the rightful owner would be located.
Now, police are trying to track down the person who lost the money.
Officers believe it happened at the Lloyd Center around lunch time. Police are asking the rightful owner to call Officer Stu Palmiter at 503-823-0097.
Callers can reach the officer until 5 p.m. Thursday or try again on Monday.
Callers will be asked to identify the amount and denomination of the money, as well as where the money was lost.
