According to the Toronto Sun, police have recovered $80,000, about half of the cash that was stolen from 2010 World Series of Poker champion Jonathan Duhamel in a home invasion on December 21. In a statement, police revealed that the cash was recovered “in a mailbox in the Montreal suburb of Longueuil on Jan. 6.”
Police said they received an anonymous tip that lead them to the cash, which was in a padded envelope and consisted of U.S. and Canadian dollars, Euros, and pounds sterling.
In the home invasion, the thieves took Duhamel's 2010 World Series of Poker bracelet, a Rolex watch, and about $160,000. His ex-girlfriend Bianca Rojas-Latraverse, John-Stephen Clark-Lemay, Anthony Bourque were arrested in connection to the robbery.
Both Rojas-Latraverse and Clark-Lemay were denied bail last month, and Bourque was later granted bail.
