Estevan resident Larry Armstrong has been recognized for a recent display of honesty.
Armstrong was presented with a commemorative coin and a certificate from the Estevan Police Service during the police board meeting on August 12. Armstrong found well over $1,000 on July 29, but rather than keep it for himself, he turned the money over to the police.
“I can't say the exact amount, because we're still looking for the rightful owner,” said Estevan Police Chief Paul Ladouceur.
Ladouceur lauded Armstrong for “honesty” and “integrity” by bringing money to the police station.
“It is citizens such as you that make the city of Estevan a great place to live, work and play,” said Ladouceur.
The police service announced earlier this year that it was introducing a community recognition program for those who have made a positive contribution to the city. Kevin Mortenson was the first to be recognized in June for his commitment to Estevan's safety patrol program.
