A Mission family found out the hard way there are early risers combing trash piles during spring clean-up week.
Ray Greenwood is a driver with Allied Trucking and was waiting for his ride at 6:30 a.m. Sunday with his duffel bag and golf clubs. His partner was late so Ray popped inside to make a phone call and within a few minutes, the items he left at the edge of the driveway were gone.
Angela, Ray’s wife, said she knows it’s most likely just a misunderstanding, as her neighbourhood’s garbage pick up day was Monday, but the mistake’s financial toll is adding up.
The black, Allied-emblazoned bag contained his work uniforms, passport, GPS and Sirius satellite radio. Coupled with the golf clubs, Angela estimates the family is down about $2,000.
If anyone has seen these items, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Angela at 604-826-3776.
