Lets hope this evidence doesn,t vanish from the police evidence locker before the 90 days is up.
Obviously the original owner is a very shot person with small feet who used the cold cash to stuff the toe of this sneaker, I'm a short person so it could be Mine It's a true Cinderella story

Merry Xmas to the customer
The idiot who used the sneaks, then returned them, defrauded the store.
We know the store computer can show who returned the sneaks (or a list of similar returns).
The cops are going to want to know why they had $5200 in csah sitting around. Under the Patriot Act, you know they will attempt to confiscate it. They try to confiscate every dime immigrants save and take home through Miami and Ft. Lauderdale International. Why would this be different?

Once I had felt the money, I would've just paid for the sneakers and left the store as quickly and unobtrusively as possible. As far as drugs are concerned, the bills could have went in the washing machines. And I would end up with a bag full of free money.
Let me find some money in a pair of tennis shoes at a store.

My friend works for the Sheriff. The money has already been claimed and returned to its original owner. Their story checked out, so the police returned the money.
