Lose A 20MIL? The San Jose Police Have It And Want To Return It To You!

Did you drop a 20MIL in the area of the Mercado la Coca Cola earlier this month? Yes. Good news, the Policial Municipal de San Jose has it and wants to give it back to you.

“If it’s yours, we want to return it. Tell us the story!”

No joke. Not even a social experiment. Really true stuff.

According to a post on Facebook, the press office of the San Jose Municipal police said they are looking for the owner of the 20MIL that a few days ago (November 6), a municipal police officer found it on the ground in the area of the Coca Cola market in the center of San Jose.

The officer, on routine patrol, thinking he was being set up or a joke being played on him, turned it in at the police desk and reported exactly the place it was found.

So far some 500 people have called in to claim the 20MIL (¢20,000 colones) after the notice was posted on Facebook.

“( …) The goal was not to conduct a social experiment … more than 500 people have expressed interest in the bill … here have the best and worst of Costa Rican,” said Marcelo Solano, the chief of the San Jose police department.
