IMO, these days with illegal drug laws put in place and restrictions on our lives due to 'terrorists', the police jurisdictions in a lot of cases, operate within a blurred line between actual drug money and people 'doing the right thing' society has always said people should do!

So grandma get's pulled over for a traffic violation and the cops are suspicious then discover a million bucks in the trunk of her vehicle like I saw on Cops one night... SO WHAT? She could have invested her money over the years and made that amount! J/K... but not impossible!

Now, any kind of transaction $10,000+ is suppose to be reported by the bank handling the transaction! "Since 1996 an optional checkbox at the top [of a report] is checked off, if the bank employee believes the transaction to be suspicious or fraudulent, commonly called a SAR, or Suspicious Activity Report." Excuse me... an "employee?"

Question: If someone gave you a large sum of money and said keep it 'no questions asked' by either of you, would you be suspicious and turn it in to the police believing that they will return it to you after say 30 days, if no one claims it?

Me... these days, I have little faith in law enforcement doing "the right thing"- so, as long as it wasn't stained red, I'd keep it!

I would keep it, but if the police contacts me and I find out it's suspected in criminal activity, I would give the money up without any objections.

Well, supposedly the police wouldn't know that you have the money in the first place so, no reason to contact you! But just because they SAY it's 'dirty money', doesn't mean it is!

Providing that they can provide the proof that it's dirty money. I'm not going to just turn it over without the needed proof. As the investigation continues and it's determined that it's not dirty money, I intend to get it back.

Then there is the story of the small Texas town Rookie Cop.....was called into the
bosses office after being there a few months....
They wanted to know why he had not picked up any of his paychecks.

He replied, "You gave me a gun and a badge.....why do I need paychecks???"

That kind of money....with the stories I've heard/read where police say it's "drug money", I'd hold onto it and if a story came on the news about someone losing it, then I'd give it to the owner. This "drug money" with the police...come on....how many hands has money passed through and how many handled drugs. That's a cop out for them wanting to keep the money.

I would have kept it mouth shut. Period! Second the poor woman is probably going to lose over half of it for attorney fees and court cost. What a shame

If the lady said keep it she obviously knew what was in the box so after popping in " Take The Money & Run " by Steve Miller I'd be dancing around like a lottery winner.

Hell yea! I'de keep it....she DID get to keep it by the way....(according to the paper this morning)

Something similar happened to a friend of mine, she got a $5,000.00 tip, but the restaurant kept it, citing that it was a misprint on the charge slip. It was CLEAR that it was 5 grand and NOTHING else....

I get an extra $20 here and there...but.....nothin even CLOSE to somethin like this!
