Police are trying to locate a person who left a small fortune in cash in a bag of clothes dropped off at a charity store at Bogangar.

Between 8pm last night and 7am this morning, someone left a large plastic bag at the front door of the town’s Baptist Church opportunity shop.

The bag contained not only clothing and a couple of travel bags, but an amount of cash.

Police suspect whoever made the donation had no idea the money was hidden in the clothes.

Anyone with information about the matter is urged to contact Tweed Heads Police on (07) 5536 0999 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

UPDATE: Police have located a person who dropped off the bag of clothes.
 
As a result of a public appeal, police have now discovered the money was mistakenly left and it will be returned to its owner.
