A UK-based couple got a very pleasant surprise after they mistakenly threw a box containing a whopping sum of £15,000 (N6,750,000) away with waste in dustbin.
The good side however, is the fact that they have been able to get their money back. Which is rare.
According to Mail Online, the couple had taken several boxes of rubbish from the house they were clearing, belonging to a deceased relative, to a recycling depot in Midsomer Norton, Somerset, they were totally unaware of the huge cash tucked inside.
An unnamed staff who was looking for an electrical cable stumbled upon the cash inside one of the boxes and deemed it fit to return the life changing sum.
Though it was difficult investigating who had owned the box, the good Samaritan contacted Avon and Somerset Police who found the couple with the help of CCTV footage from the recycling centre.
Officers identified the car that had dropped them off and were then able to find the couple’s address.
Reacting to the kind gesture exhibited by the honest employee, the couple upon reaching Radstock Police station said that they had been clearing a relative’s house in Bath and dropped off boxes at the recycling centre.
The couple added that the relative had been known to hide money in strange places around the house.
Avon and Somerset Police also issued a statement on Facebook which read:
‘We would like to say a big thank you to the staff at the recycling centre.
‘Without their diligent attitude, integrity and assistance, the family would never have known about the money found, and we would not have been able to return it to them, especially in time for Christmas.”
