Wallets found in Park City, turned over to police

Three wallets were turned in to the Park City Police Department on Friday after they were found on different streets and at different times during the day while another one was turned in on Sunday.

At 11:58 p.m., someone on Main Street found a wallet and contacted the police. Someone earlier found a wallet in a Park Avenue parking lot and contacted the police at 2:41 p.m. At 12:16 p.m., the police were contacted after a wallet was found on Snow Creek Drive.

The wallet found on Sunday was discovered at a location on Monitor Drive.

The Police Department typically looks for identification inside a wallet that is turned in and then contacts the owner to retrieve it at the police station. Wallets are put in the department's evidence room for safekeeping and someone must show proof of ownership before a wallet is released.

"It's an indication of how honest and how caring our residents are," Phil Kirk, a police captain, said, adding, "It's not finders keepers, losers weepers."

On Saturday, meanwhile, someone found a jacket in a parking lot along S.R. 224 with a passport inside at 7:24 p.m. and contacted the police.
