Forgotten TV Treasure to be Recycled is Returned to its Rightful Owner
(GEEP Barrie Facility and Cash Found)
February 15, 2017 – GEEP is pleased to announce that Barrie Police Investigative Services have returned a forgotten treasure left inside an old TV, recycled at GEEP’s Barrie facility, to its rightful owner.
As reported by Barrie Today, Barrie Police Investigative Services have spent the past month trying to trace back and return the found treasure to its owner.
On January 13th of this year, an old television was dismantled at our GEEP Barrie facility, located at 220 John Street, when an employee found a cash box inside the TV with over $100,000 cash and some personal banking records, dating back over 30 years ago, to 1985.
The GEEP employee reported and handed over the items to the General Manager and police were involved to handle the matter accordingly.
GEEP commends the honest actions of our employees and staff and are happy to hear the money has been returned to its original owner.
