BALTIMORE — Comptroller Peter Franchot announced that 259 people discovered more than $271,000 in unclaimed funds at this years Maryland State Fair.

Approximately 1,360 people made inquiries at the unclaimed property booth at this year's State Fair which was set up to reunite Marylanders with money they are owed.

“Several hundred people had a great time at the State Fair and learned about money that is rightfully theirs; I call that a red-letter day,” Comptroller Franchot said. “Our agency staff fans out across the state to reach residents and reunite them with money or property that is just waiting to be claimed by their owner.”
