Police yesterday confirmed no-one had come forward to claim a large amount of cash discovered at a Shepparton opportunity shop last week.

Two opportunity shop volunteers handed a sum of cash to police, after finding it inside a shoebox on Monday last week.

Shepparton police property manager Belinda Logan said the volunteers discovered the money among a bag of men’s shoes while sorting through donations. Ms Logan said the money was not a donation to the opportunity shop.

She said the owner had three months to claim the money before the shop became its legal owner.

‘‘We need to know exactly how much money it is, what denominations it’s in and what it was actually found in, ’’ Ms Logan said.


‘‘We have to be a bit vague about information because otherwise anyone could try and claim the money is theirs.’’

Shepparton police Acting Senior Sergeant Jason Kelly yesterday said he hoped someone came forward soon to accept the money.


Anyone who believes the money could belong to them can phone Belinda Logan at Shepparton Police Station on 58205752.
