According to police, the man was walking through the grocery store, located near 10th and Deuce of Clubs Avenues on Feb. 9 when he dropped $6,000 in cash.
"This gentleman walks with a limp and the Safeway employees are acquainted with him but do not know how to contact him," police said in a Facebook post.
On Thursday, police said they verified the identity of the man who lost the money.
"Thank you to everyone who helped share this information and those who contacted us with tips leading to his identity," police said.
