Those "lumps" could easily go unnoticed?.. Bull, lumps in a suit big enough to add up to 13,000 dollars will not go unnoticed during clothing checks. Some Thrift store worker hit the jackpot and won't confess. I've had Goodwill workers personally tell me, they check purses, pockets, suitcase liners, and attache' cases religiously. Why? Because this sort of thing happens often, either in small ways or a big way. It's sad the poor man gets punished for a good deed. Hope his money turns up.[Fingers crossed for him]
