Police are keeping the money

The Canton Illinois police tried to give the $267.00 back to its owner. They attempted to return the money for about 17 years.

Brian Campbell was arrested on Feb. 27, 1989. He was convicted on charges of unlawful use of a weapon and unlawful possession of marijuana.

During the arrest police confiscated all his property, which is standard procedure. Campbell was also wanted on a burglary warrant in Indiana, where he had lived at the time. When Canton police sent him to Indiana to faces charges there, they forwarded all his property except the $267 he had been carrying in cash.

It is not known why the cash was not sent along with the rest of Campbell’s property.

An Indiana address for Campbell was recently found, but he had moved two days earlier with no forwarding address.

Illinois law states that property is considered abandoned after six months. What to do with this abandoned property? Canton police will put the $267 in a fund that pays for confidential police informants. Perhaps the informants could locate Campbell.

Lost assets such as these and other unclaimed money are usually forwarded to the State Treasurer. The state adds these assets to it’s unclaimed property section.
