Victim:  31 yoa male / Roseburg, OR

On June 20, 2011, at about 0900 hours, Andrew Bachmeier was driving on NE Knoll Street when he noticed what appeared to be money scattered in the roadway. Bachmeier stopped to investigate and found an envelope with a large amount of cash along with the scattered money.

Bachmeier gathered up the money and then called the Sheriff's Office to report the find. When the money was counted it totaled $1,025.00.

Later in the day, a 31 year old Roseburg man called reporting he had lost the same amount of money earlier in the day. He told deputies that he had placed the envelope full of money on the top of his car and drove away. The money was returned to the owner.

Sheriff John Hanlin will be presenting Bachmeier with a commendation for his honesty and meritorious actions. The presentation will take place today at 2:30 pm in the Sheriff's Office conference room.
