Jonathan Duhamel's 2010 World Series of Poker Bracelet was found by a street sweeper that was cleaning the Ville-Marie in Montreal. It's reported the sweeper was cleaning with a hose in a bucket and a mud covered shiny object fell at his feet. The sweeper is a company employee of JR Villeneuve Inc.
TVA Nouvelles contacted Duhamel's manager Philippe Jette who said: "The sentimental value [of the bracelet] is priceless. We are giving the bracelet to the police, because it is still a piece of evidence, and should help the police with the investigation. We are happy, and Jonathan is doing very well."
Although the bracelet has a value estimated at around $40,000, it has been partially recovered and severely damaged and looks as if someone was trying to remove Duhamel's named from the back of the bracelet. From a report by PrincePoker.com Duhamel was contacted right after the bracelet was found and he is extremely pleased about its being recovered.
Duhamel was beaten and robbed in December during a home invasion - one of the suspects in the robbery is Duhamel's ex-girlfriend who is still in jail. A trial date is set for next week in the case.
