The Winnipeg Police Service is hoping to reunite a large sum of money with its rightful owner.

Constable Jason Michalyshen of the WPS said that within the last month a member of the public came forward with a large amount of money.  

"We're not talking about a few dollars here. It's significant. And if someone lost or misplaced this money, they're going to know it. And if there reason's or circumstances are legitimate, we want to identify who this individual, or individuas are found," Michalyshen said.

All the WPS can say at this time is that the money was found in the south end of Winnipeg. They're asking anybody who has lost a significant amount of money, or knows somebody who has, to contact police.
