Last week the owner of Smitty’s Fish House West at 343 Genesee St. notified law enforcement that he found a large sum of money in the parking lot of his business.
It was $2,000, and in a positive update- has been returned to its rightful owner.
Police said that the money was packaged in a very specific manner, and asked that anyone who claim it be able to explain that.
Turns out the money belonged to a contractor who accidentally dropped it after being paid for a job.
“We thank our great community for their help in sharing our message and helping us with this successful resolution,” police said in the Facebook post.
