Tourist gets camera back

This is following up on an article from last week. On July 14 a tourist from the Netherlands turned in a camera at the Clearwater detachment.

This last week, the owner came forward looking for it. He is from Wisconsin and was happy to hear that somebody had turned in his camera and money.


Inside the case there was $119 USD and $420 CAD plus a camera lens worth $1000. The camera and money have been returned.
