I've walked into a restaurant once, where I found easily 500+ USD rolled into a bundle on the floor. I turned the money in, although I think I saw the waitresses splitting it up later as a 'bonus tip'.
Would it have been safer to have turned it in to NYPD, or are they light-fingered too?

Well, the NYPD wouldn't waste time looking for the owner of the money, it would probably just float around.

I thought you'd like to know that your location reads "Manchester, Englandland" obviously a typo...& before certain members get any funny ideas, only David can touch this, together with the member whose location it is.

I'll bet anything it gets claimed. I wouldn't have said anything to be honest
