Recommended Posts

Police in Berlin have praised an "honest finder" who handed in cash and gold bars worth a total of €33,500 ($40,000; £30,000) found in a briefcase under a tree.

The small fortune comprising €3,500 in cash and 22 gold bars weighing a total of 1kg was found just outside a bank in the working class district of Neukölln.

"Amazing what you can find under a tree in Neukölln," the police said on Twitter.

They later tracked down the owner.

He had put the briefcase down as he locked his bicycle and then completely forgot about it, police said.

and then

Imagine having so much wealth that carrying a load like that wouldn't be the focus of your mind.  When I traveled for work, I never lost physical contact with my carry-on in the airport.
