Cinderella may be in the habit of losing her slippers but few would knowingly discard shoes worth a significant amount of cash.
Police in Shepparton are following in Prince Charming’s footsteps in a bid to track down the owner of a very expensive shoebox.
Two elderly ladies attended the police station on Monday after finding a large stash of cash stowed inside a shoebox.
The women had been volunteering their time at a charity op shop and were sorting through donations when they discovered the cash among a bag of men’s shoes and immediately handed it in to police.
Acting Senior Sergeant Jason Kelly said police had been blown away by the honesty and kindness of the good samaritans.
“They’ve done the right thing and handed the money in, when it would have been so easy to pocket it,” he said.
“We’re hoping that we can return the good deed by tracking down the rightful owner of the money.”
Investigators believe the shoes were placed in a charity bin sometime within the past month.
