A husband and wife found a bag filled with nearly $13,000 on top of a trash can in Clarksville, Tenn. The loot was accidentally left behind by a man who set the bag down to eat some ice cream, Nashville’s News Channel 5 reports.
Kenneth Allen, part of the duo who found the money, told reporters that he spotted the owner’s wallet in the bag when he began counting the money.
“We went to the address that was on the guy’s license. Tried to locate him that way. There was no answer at his house,” Allen told the news station.
The police later identified the man and returned the money.
“Turns out the guy had a medical condition, and he was acting adversely to the medication,” Allen said.
