CLAYTON, Mo. – A jailer makes a surprise find in the bathroom of the St. Louis County facility's intake center.
The correctional officer found $55,000 stuffed behind a toilet paper dispenser at the St. Louis County Justice Center in downtown Clayton last week.
Police Chief Thomas Byrne says the bundle of money was in $100 and $50 bills.
None of the inmates who were interviewed knew anything about it.
Byrne said the money has been placed in a special bank account until the rightful owner is determined.
