"I set the deposit from the previous day on my bumper in the car. Went across the street got the newspaper, jumped in my truck and totally forgot that it was on the front, resting in the front bumper. I thought we were out roughly about $10,000 in cash. I can't thank the gentleman enough who found it and returned it," said Violette.

Left $10,000 in cash unattended, even for a short period of time?  You kind of deserved to lose it; if you were an employee you'd be canned.

I'd love to get a $10,000 cash bonus, but I think the rightful owner would most likely find me and kill me.

If you ever need to set something down before getting in your car, *always* set it on the hood (bonnet for you UK folks), right in front of the driver. That way, if you forget about it and get in the car, it's sitting right there where you can see it. If it's on the roof or bumper, you're likely to drive off and lose it. But who the hell puts $10K on their bumper and walks away? WTF?

While on his way home from a doctors appointment, driving here on Old Belgrade Road he thought he saw something here on the center yellow lines. What he thought was debris turned out to be something else.

"The closer I got you could tell it was either a stack of money or a checkbook," said Grover.

The bag Raynard came across contained nearly $10,000 in cash.


Wait, what? Was it a bag, or a stack of money?

Assuming the depositor is the small-business owner, his employees oughta consider canning him.  They are most likely the ones to wind up short just before Christmas if the cash stayed missing.

What's wrong with you?

It was a bag stack book.

Clear as day.

Randy Violette, the Owner of Power Equipment Plus in Sidney, was bringing the cash to the bank.
"I set the deposit from the previous day on my bumper in the car.


An equipment rental that does 10k in cash business per day? Sounds a little fishy to me.

I'm glad the owner(idiot) went to get it. Once something is turned over to the police and it isn't picked up in X amount of time, it becomes theirs.

They might deposit every week, that would make that week's earnings the deposit of the previous day.

Not sure where you're from, but where I grew up and even when I lived in other areas it was always original owner > after 6 months to 1 year goes to person who found it > police if the person who found it cannot be contacted or found.

your 'Doh!' PSA for today: If you need to put something down 'for a second', make it the *least* expensive thing that you're holding.  Put your coffee or your cotton gloves down on the bumper, meanwhile keep wallets, sacks of cash, etc. in your hand or in your pocket.

On this last Thanksgiving morning, my Sis and I found a wallet with almost $1000 cash at the top of the highest slide in Tuscaloosa.  ID and credit cards, but no phone number.  We cross referenced the address to names and facebook profiles and sent a vague message.  We kept checking back off and on all day in Columbus, MS while spending the day with our parents.  Finally got a response on the drive back and called them from the car.  They answered all the questions and that night, on the way back through T-town, we were able to meet up with a very grateful New York state family and return all of their money.
