As long as it did not contain any $5000 dollar bills, the "finder" should be in good shape.

The customer did the right thing. If no one claims the money, the authorities should hand the money over to the honest customer. Finders, keepers. Turning it in gives the "owner" the opportunity to get it back.
Who knows who the owner is of that money. Anyone can claim to be the owner and get that money. The money should have been given to the customer who found it. Maybe the person who left it there is a secret Santa and was intending for a customer to find it for Christmas. This was his blessing in disguise and he didn't even know it. Oh well, hopefully he'll get the money back before Christmas.

That is so not true. There are tons of people who do not trust banks. I am one of them. No, my money is not hidden in my shoes. You could never in a million years find it. I know quite a few people who do not keep their money in any financial institution anywhere. They are honest, but they and I do not trust banks. Why should we? Just another crook corporation.
What is about banks that you do not trust? Do you not trust the institution itself or the people who work at them? They are held much more accountable for handing people's money that our illustrious Federal Government. It is Congress and the IRS whom you should not trust. The banks only hold your money while the government confiscates it! People who say they do not trust banks sure trust them when it comes to needing a check cashed, I notice.
