Police are appealing for information after banknotes worth around £60,000 were mysteriously found floating down a river in Lincolnshire.
A dog walker spotted the cash near to Spalding town centre last month.
Officers who recovered the banknotes say a large amount was damaged but a good quantity appear to be in fair condition.
They are now trying to trace the owner.
If they cannot it will become the subject of a court forfeiture order.
Lincolnshire Police’s most senior officer has been suspended over ‘potential conduct matters’.
The specific allegations behind Neil Rhodes’ suspension have not yet been released.
A 23 year old man from Grantham was killed in a Christmas Day smash.
The accident happened on the B1990 Sleaford Road at Metheringham involving a Blue Peugeot 307 and a white Fiat.
The driver of the Peugeot died in hospital from his injuries. Lincolnshire Police are appealing for witnesses to the accident.
