The banknote was promptly returned to its owner, safe and unharmed

Victoria Police Chief Del Manak always keeps a watchful eye on the streets of his city.

When a woman named Anna dropped a $10 bill at the corner of Broughton and Douglas streets Friday afternoon, Manak was there to rescue it. The chief was in conversation with a Black Press reporter at the time when the woman walked by and the bill dropped beside him.

“Wait! You dropped $10!” shouted Manak, who ran after her.

He returned the valuable banknote to its owner, safe and unharmed.
