$55G Found Stuffed Behind Toilet Paper in Jail Bathroom

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.
