Man drops ¥23,000, picked up by woman meters away

How much money could you pick up off the ground?

A woman in north China’s Changchun city saw bundles of cash dropping from a man’s package onto the ground on Sept. 23. She picked them up instead of walking on by, and stuffed the money into her own bag.

The man, surnamed Song, reported the case to the police after watching the surveillance video from nearby buildings.

Local police are still looking for the woman who pocketed the money, saying it’s illegal to take possession of money lost by others knowingly.
