george costanza wallet

A Good Samaritan turned in a huge George Costanza-sized wallet full of cash

Police in British Columbia are highlighting a heartwarming story this week; a Good Samaritan discovered a "George Costanza" sized wallet with $2,290 in cash and promptly returned it to the New Westminster police department.

The anonymous do-gooder was walking on 8th Street and Carnarvon Street when he spotted the wallet, per the press release.

"It was a true George Costanza wallet," stated Constable Keall. "It had so much cash and cards inside it didn't fold shut."

The police contacted the owner of the wallet, who understandably was "very relieved" to be reunited with it.

The owner shared that he was on the way to the bank to deposit the funds when he lost the wallet.

Deputy Chief Constable Paul Hyland said the selfless act reminded the police department of how kind Canadians can be.

"Unfortunately in policing we often deal with the negative aspects of human behaviour," Hyland said.

"It is always great to get a file like this that reminds us how amazing people can be, especially during a time when so many are negatively affected by the COVID pandemic."
