Ridge Meadows RCMP are appreciative of an honest teen who turned in some cash they found.

According to Cpl. Julie Klaussner, the 13-year-old contacted police after locating a “significant sum of money.” On Friday, Feb. 3, while out shopping with family at the Maple Ridge Canadian Tire store located at 11969 200th St., the youth found the money and contacted police.

The teen indicated to the police officer that it was important to them to locate the rightful owner, as the loss of the money could have an impact to the person.
