This anecdote of the honesty of the police is really pleasing to the people who usually hear the tales of the police’s negligence. The Kansas Police Department of the United States found a man’s lost wallet 51 years ago (Police returned 51 years ago lost wallet). He took out the present address of the person and also took the purse to his house.
The person’s purse was lost in 1970. Since then the purse was not found by the police for 51 years. Now in 2021, the Great Bend Police Department found the lost purse of the person. As soon as the purse was found, the police tried to trace the person who had lost it years ago. Eventually the man was found in Lawrence, Kansas and when he was given this purse, it took him time to remember the incident.
Police shared the story on Facebook
The Great Bend Police Department shared this anecdote via a Facebook post. He wrote in his post that recently a citizen handed over the wallet to the police department (Police found wallet lost in 1974). In this purse, the officers had found many other items including social security card and driving license. Interestingly, the license expired in 1974 itself. After this the officials contacted the original owner of the wallet. They now live in Lawrence, Kansas.
