Seems “The door fell open” or something like that.
The bundles of bills broke open and scattered over the road.
People being people, many passers-by stopped and picked up some of the cash.
Apparently, keeping it is a felony (according to the State Police)
Why so? No one stole the money, it was blowing across the road.
If I find a $50 bill blowing in the wind in a parking lot, I get to keep that. It isn’t up to me to find the bill’s owner. If I find an envelope with some cash in it, even after turning it in, if no one can prove it is theirs and claims it, it comes back to me, the finder.
Why, since the Brinks folks lost some cash, is keeping any cash I found blowing across the road a felony?
I mean, Finders Keeper sand all that. The Brinks folks did not have control of the money. The lost it.
Now, the moral thing to do is to return the money. If, of course, Brinks can prove that that was their money. If they can’t, then it should belong to the finder.
How about if I find it next week a mile away?
