Appeal for missing four-figure sum
IT WOULD appear that someone may well have had a night on the town last Friday after finding an unexpected windfall on a Dunfermline pavement.
The owner of the Ink Shop, in Baldridgeburn, had an armful of packages as he left the premises at around 8.30pm and got into his car just outside.
He did not notice until much later that he had dropped one of the objects - a bank bag containing a four-figure sum.
Rushing back to the scene he discovered the bank bag was missing along with the money but a slip that had been inside had been thrown on the ground.
Now the owner has offered to give the money - or what is left of it - to charity if it is returned.
A shop worker said, "The bank bag has been dropped in the nine feet between him leaving the shop and getting in the car but he didn't realise what had happened until he got home to Burntisland.
"When he got back to the shop the slip was lying in the street but no bank bag. It may be that the money has been blown but if not we're appealing for it to be returned and it will be donated to charity.
"It may be a long shot but it's worth a try.
"The money has been lost but this way at least a good cause could benefit from what's happened."
Anyone who wants to help return the money can contact the Ink Shop on 622022.

If the slip that was inside had been "thrown on the ground" get it dusted for prints man. I saw something like this on a Scooby Doo episode once, and he would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for those meddling kids.
