$1,100 lost, $900 returned to Hastings man with an apology

HASTINGS, Minn. – After he lost an envelope with $1,100 in cash on the way home from the bank, a Hastings man figured his money was gone forever.

A week later, the money was returned, a least most of it.

The Hastings Police Department received an anonymous letter Wednesday from the person who found the envelope. The person returned $900 of the $1,100 and in the letter the person wrote that they “really needed” the $200 and that they were sorry they had to take some of the money.

Officers were attempting to get in touch with the man who reported he had lost the cash as week earlier so that he can come and recover it, a least most of it.
