The unusual situation occurred on Friday, November 12. An off-duty policeman entered a bar in Wałcz.

Beata Budzyń from the County Police Headquarters in Wałcz.
The officer ran outside, but the woman was no longer there. Together with the bar staff they counted the money. It was 47 800 zlotys.

Thanks to the help of the owners of the premises, it was possible to reach the woman on the same day and give her the lost money.
Asp. Beata Budzyń reminds that whoever appropriates someone else’s movable property or property rights shall be subject to the penalty of deprivation of liberty for up to three years. In the event of a minor or misappropriation of the found property, the perpetrator shall be subject to a fine, the penalty of restriction of liberty or the penalty of deprivation of liberty for up to one year.
A moment of forgetfulness and a moment of distraction can be very costly. Remember that we ourselves are primarily responsible for the proper protection of our property. Always and everywhere, let’s take care of our property, wallets, luggage, etc. Each moment of distraction can be a great opportunity for thieves. The attitude presented by the policeman from Wałcz and the owners of the premises should be a standard reaction of every person to such an event
