$2,600 lost on the Sherwood Highway remains missing. Police recovered the rest of what began as $5,000 in an envelope that a man left on top of his car.
(SHERWOOD, Ore.) - Oregon State Police is asking for the public's cooperation to help return any found money to its owner after two state troopers found nearly half of his lost $5,000 cash blowing along the Tualatin-Sherwood Highway Tuesday night.
OSP Lt. Gregg Hastings, says yesterday at approximately 8:30 PM, OSP Recruit Trooper Scott Kinch was on his first night of driving accompanied by his field training coach Senior Trooper James Duncan.
"As they were eastbound on Tualatin-Sherwood Highway east of Sherwood, Recruit Kinch spotted money lying on the highway. Upon turning around and driving back to where he spotted the money, they got out of their patrol car and found numerous $100 bills."
Hastings says Senior Trooper Duncan contacted local police agencies and Washington County emergency dispatch regarding the found money.
"Approximately 30 minutes later Duncan was notified by Washington County that a Sherwood man reported losing $5,000 cash in an envelope. The man reported stopping at a local gas station and forgot he placed the envelope containing cash on the back of his vehicle. The man drove off and later discovered he had lost the money."
Duncan and Kinch met the man back where the money was found and spent nearly 90 minutes searching along both sides of the road. In total, they recovered $2,400 cash.
OSP is trying to help the owner recover the remaining lost money. Anyone who found cash along Tualatin-Sherwood Highway last night or early this morning is asked to call OSP Northern Command Center dispatch at 800-452-7888.
