Reader seeks owner of container of money found in BJ’s parking lot

DEAR SUN SPOTS: On Saturday, Aug. 13, my husband and I went to BJ’s in Auburn. When I got out of our vehicle I spotted a container on the ground. When I picked it up I found that there was money inside it.

I reported it to customer service and asked them to page me if anyone reported losing money and when I left the store I gave them my name and phone number. I haven’t heard from anyone yet so I thought I would reach out to Sun Spots.
