$200K Found on NYC Street!

A guy found just under $200K on a NYC street and cops seized it. Should the guy get it back? Should he get at least some of it?

Read about the story here.

I say finders, keepers - give the guy back his cash!

Thanks, Christopher, for the heads up.

If he had brought the bag promptly to a police station, checked it in and got a receipt, then maybe he would have a valid claim.

His questionable story, including a police chase, makes him look like an idiot.

Story sounds a little fishy to me.

I wonder if he checked the phone booth for a quarter?

I don't think he sounds stupid at all. When you find a bag of $200,000 any smart person knows that you run from the cops.
