Did you lose a sack of a cash? Come forward and claim it! In Los Angeles, police are asking for the public's help identifying a man who left $8,000 in cash at a restaurant near Los Angeles International Airport.
This man left $8,000 near LAX. Have you seen him?
On December 19, an unidentified man had breakfast at the Denny's on Century Blvd. near LAX, then walked out of the restaurant, leaving behind more than $8,000 in cash in the booth where he was sitting. Another customer then found the money and turned it over to police.
If you look at the surveillance image of the guy, he looks Asian. He looks like your uncle.
But eight grand is not something that just falls out of your uncle's pocket. I'm guessing someone had a long, sad cry or got his ass kicked after realizing the money was missing. The Los Angeles Police Department has been trying to identify and locate the man to reunite him with the cash.
Detectives aren't releasing too much information so that when the man comes forward he can provide specific details to prove that the money is his. Police expect that whoever left the money will be able to identify where he left it, the denominations of the bills and what it was left in.
But dude, time is running out.
According to police, after 97 days, it's finders keepers. That means if the rightful owner doesn't come forward by March 25, the money will go back to the person who found it.
Anyone with information is asked to contact detectives at the LAPD's Pacific Division at 310-482-6313. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).
