Already paid for by insurance, or long-forgotten. Still, it IS somebody else's property, either the insurance company's or bank's. But it sure would be tempting to keep it since it came with the property. How nice of the bank to consider a "reward". They should be glad to get half back.

It would never occur to me that an old safe sitting in a former bank might have anything of interest in it. 300,000 Euros in small bills: Tell the lab to get the cocaine trace tests ready....

I like the immigrants observation that you can be an immigrant and be an honest person also, I never would have thought it. You know hundreds of years ago my peeps were immigrants {the first sent to Barbados on a prison ship} and I always thought they were criminals, as they were immigrants. Now my whole world view is totally screwed. Well I guess I'll have to change my ways and turn over a new leaf, or an old safe! MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!

What kind of idiot would call the pigs? I mean you might as well call any common criminal and tell them what you found. Well once an idiot always an idiot I guess. I would have kept every nickel of that money. Oh and I would have given the brothers ONLY what my origional arrangement with them was as well.
