Thank god the RCMP caught this menace to society.
Prince Edward Island RCMP say Richard Wright, the mystery man believed to be handing out free cash across HRM last week, has been sent to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for a medical assessment.
Sgt. Leanne Butler said RCMP received a call for a wellness check on Wright last Thursday. Butler said the officers spotted Wright driving his car and stopped him for the assessment.
“The officers concluded that the gentleman should go to the hospital for further assessment by a medical health person,” she said.
“It’s not a criminal act. There’s no charges.”
