What would you do if you saw money falling from the sky?

It’s not everyday it literally rains money, but for one Nanaimo woman, it was one unexpected reality.

According to Nanaimo RCMP, the woman, whose name is being withheld, told police she was enjoying her daily walk around mid-morning on Monday January 4th, when a vehicle went flying past her.

Seconds later, money was seen floating from the sky and began to fall around her.

The woman could not grab the license plate number or description of the vehicle as it drove past her, but did say that it did not stop.

“Being an honest soul, the lady picked up all the money up and promptly called the Nanaimo RCMP to report her find,” said Constable Gary O’Brien.

No reports of lost money have been filed with the Nanaimo RCMP detachment.

“The owner of the money may not even be aware that it had flown out an open window. Another theory is that it may have been gained through illegal means and the owner is reluctant to report it,” added O’Brien.

The money will be held for ninety days and if the lawful owner is not found, it will be turned over to the finder.

Anyone who believes the money belongs to them and can prove it is asked to call the Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345 and quote file No. 2021-388.
