An employee at a Canadian recycling plant hit the jackpot when he found more than $100-thousand stashed inside an old TV set. "There was like, four stacks of $50 bills, and I knew it was a large amount of money," Rick Deschamps, general manager says. He turned the cash over and thanks to other documents found inside, authorities were able to track down the original owner.
It turns out a 68-year-old gave the TV to a friend 30-years-ago and simply forgot the cash was inside. The money has since been returned to the senior citizen. No word on if the employee got a reward or if the rightful owner opened a savings account.
