But he has to be careful: "[W]e also may have a situation where the amount of money is really large and could likely be drug money. Should that be handled the same way? Those are some of the things I think we need to know more about and understand."
    Well if it was drug money, are they worried it could be contaminated with, like, powdered stuff, that the girl could hurt herself with, if she was to throw it on the floor and roll in it, like a dog in a dead squirall!
    If that is the case, we gotta collect now for the Dal PD a washing machine! I find lots of money in mine, when I do the hubby laundry. (If I can ever get the funny pic pic up, ya'll will know why)

    Update 2 (5:45 p.m.): Now Dallas Police Chief David O. Brown says Donaldson might be able to keep the money, but only after another three-month wait. Texas state law says that someone who finds cash like this must give public notice and then wait 30 days for someone to claim it. If nobody does, there's another 90-day waiting period, and then Donaldson can finally get her car.

    it was just announced that the Dallas PD made a mistake and returning the money to the girl after another waiting period of 90 days.
    maybe Dallas is so broke, they steal from children and then have to get a loan to pay it back.
    what a bunch of dirtbags!

    The Dallas Police Association gave the kid $2000.00 and another $8000.00 has been donated.

    Not a bad reward for turning in $2000.00

    Turn in 2 and get 10, I like those odds

    Gotta run, I am going to turn in a grand to the police

    Wow, I wish I had a couple grand to turn in. I got a feeling no one would care about my loss. "Serves him right, he should have had better sense."

    Yes! I wonder if the "City" is going to re-write their ordinance now.

    Thanks for the video link, so nice to see humbleness and gratitude, from one so young.

    (made me think of the little smarty pants boy at the beach other day. He said to me, "give me everything you find"! So I asked, "why should I do that? Does everyone give you everything you want?" He said,"YEP"! I almost had no clue what to say to a comment like that, from a 6-7 yr old....So I advised him, "well you are a very lucky young man, and I hope it stays like that for you, all your life.")

    Another cool video at that link:
    Towards the bottom, where the guy found $22,000 worth of savings bonds at a metals recycling plant stuffed in a barrel of scrap, did a ton of legwork and found the owner.
