Cold Cash

Couple finds thousands in cash in fridge
JANESVILLE, Wis. (UPI) -- Janesville, Wis., police say a cash bundle discovered by a couple in their refrigerator -- an estimated $10,000 to $12,000 -- has not been linked to a crime. Police said the cash, which will not have an accurate total until the moldy bills are exchanged for new currency, will revert to the ownership of James and Colleen Mesler if the owner is not found by March 11, the Janesville (Wis.) Gazette reported. "The money has been determined to be 'found property' and subject to applicable state finder statutes. The money has been returned to the bank," police said in a statement. An investigation found the money was not stolen or tied to the drug trade, police said. However, the previous tenants of the apartment occupied by the Meslers are currently defendants in a cocaine-trafficking case.
