US cops seek return of $30,000 dropped on road

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Police have asked for the return of $30,000 (£23,000) that fell off the back of a truck in Michigan.

Officers responding to a traffic problem on Thursday came across drivers scrambling to pick up dollar bills strewn across Route 31.

The owner told police he had accidentally left a box carrying the cash on the bumper of his truck.

As of Saturday about $7,000 had been handed in, prompting a grateful message from officers on Facebook.

If you can forget 30K on the back of your bumper then you didn't need it. I would absolutely not return the $. His negligence, my reward. Lol

left a box containing a year's wages for many people on the bumper of a truck?
Wants it returned?
WTF, man. Dumb is dumb, and if I found that money I'd not return it.

Just because he had $30k to lose doesn�t mean he didn�t need it to, say, pay wages to his employees. Even if not, mistakes happen and that money, IMO, is not 'finders keepers'. It is stealing it.
There is a current issue here in U.K. with a couple of known criminals winning �4million on a scratch card. Only problem is it is thought the ticket was bought with a stolen debit card. Money being withheld pro tem but the men insIst the win is theirs by right. As the men don�t have bank accounts the card couldn�t be theirs.........

 

ETA. Why do commas etc not appear in the text properly on this site.  Is there a way round it?

Are you copying and pasting your posts in from an external text editor ? If so, then that's the reason apostrophes aren't showing up.

Hilarious. People speak as if being dumb is a crime, not needing something automatically means "it is mine if I found it". How come this human's generation become like this..

I am using a iPad and posting my comments using the direct on-screen box, as now.  When I apostrophise at this stage they look normal.  But I bet this'll be a question mark once I click on submit reply.

Well I never!  Didn’t do it this time.  So, not consistent.  Wonder what changes things.

Not sure why that should be - but it's good that it's working now. :)

How does one neglect that amount of money? But then, when I go to an ATM I have found debits cards left by the last user.

No idea.  The item seems to have dropped out of the news.

The guy had a brain fart.   We all have.   I'd give him his money back.     

Would you guys steal his car if he accidentally left his keys in it?
