    Seriously Though, My other post was in Jest,
    But Really ? the Money on the Road is Obviously Insured.
    Insurance rates will Never Drop No matter What !

    Most People Don't check their Homeowners to see if it Covers $300.00 in a Wallet,
    They just Hurt. odds are if it does, their rate will increase. & They could eventually be paying Thousands More, as it will never revert Back to the old rate.

    there is a Difference in my mind. I Would Not Judge someone who
    Picks up even A Bag of $50,000 in bills from The Street.
    & If on Their jury, they would either be acquitted or it would be a hung Jury.
    In my mind, something can be wrong and not illegal. I'm tired of hearing politicians justify their corruption by saying that its ok because they have not been charged or convicted of a crime.

    Me? No question, I'd return every dollar. The insurance is pure rationalization IMO.

    Would you return a lost item found on the highway that has identification on it? Although I consider a fracked gas company to be an enemy because they built a refinery adjacent to my old neighborhood and pours tons of carcinogens into the neighborhood, when I found a piece of their equipment that had fallen off a truck, I returned it (yes, I was tempted to take & destroy it).

    I would return it because of my conscience but they can't expect to get it all back. They must already write it off. Not everyone has a conscience.

    You have to show effort was made to return the item, otherwise, they could call it " theft by finding"....I guess it's a thing.

    I remember a truck full of meat turned over on a highway in Texas when I was young....stopped traffic on both sides for EVER. Folks were running all over picking up packages of steaks and roasts. Mom....why does my porterhouse have road rash?

    I found a 100 dollar bill laying on the sidewalk in front of the bank....brand new note. I thought it was a joke like maybe had a string attached or it was a fake advertisement.....so I stood and looked at it for a while. There wasn't any foot traffic to speak of, I waited for a few minutes for somebody to come around frantically looking at the ground, but nobody came along and I bent over and picked it up. It made me feel bad for whoever lost it, an elderly person or somebody who really needed it. There is no way to return that.....I mean, what are you going to say? Did anybody lose a hundred dollar bill? anyone? You'd likely have 4 people show up to claim it ha ha.

    Absolutely a crime to keep the money, as it should be. The money was not lost it was dropped. If I drop my wallet, whether I know it’s dropped or not, it is still a crime for you to keep it. As soon as the wallet leaves my pocket it’s not a free for all to see who can scoop it up quickest.....

    Then the same ethics should be employed in metal detecting. Anything found would be the property owners. If public property, turn it in to the city or state who owns the property. The only things you could keep would be those found on your own property. Does not seem so black/white now, does it? Nobody would detect if they had to give away whatever they found.

    A few years ago, I was detecting one of the local beaches. An older man asked if I'd found anything. I mentioned that I had found some change and trash, nothing good. He asked what I did with the change. I told him that since none of it was old, I would just spend it. He got all upset and said that I was not allowed to keep it. I had to turn it in to the city since I found it on city property. My answer was that whomever I turned the money in to would not be happy having to deal with $10 in loose change every time someone detected the beach. It made no sense. He still insisted that I couldn't keep the money since it wasn't mine originally. Some people have nothing better to do.
