Man Buys Car from Police Auction… Discovers Secret Stash Inside the Door

One man (who did not reveal his real name for obvious reasons) bought a car from a police auction and got a great bargain from it. Though the price was not revealed, it soon became apparent that he got the best bargain of all.

But it did not appear so at first…

You see, the car’s power window was not functioning. That would surely cost him more money to have repaired, so he decided to fix it himself. It was a good thing he did so because he found a secret stash hidden beneath the frame!

A black bag was stashed inside the door and might have been the reason why the power window was jammed.

After removing the bag, he gingerly opened it to check the contents. After all, it could be something explosive!

Inside the bag were 7 items wrapped in duct tape. Considering the car came from the police department, this stash could be anything! But when he carefully peeled off a portion from one of the items, he found a stack of money, instead!

There were bundles filled with $10 and others filled with $20. He never revealed the total amount; though netizens speculated it was worth a few thousand dollars.

Excited over the rare find, he posted his find and it quickly went viral. However, he soon realized his folly and deleted the post – but it had already gone so viral that there were hundreds of copies of his photos shared online. It seems that the internet does not forget.

Even though he had deleted his original post, the story continues to circulate on the web, especially with people debating whether he had the right to keep the money or whether he should return it to the rightful owner. The latter is, of course, a scary prospect.

So, if you were in the same situation, what would you have done with the money?
