PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. – Linda Harwood seems to have a knack for finding lost cash.
She was driving on Route 3 in Plattsburgh, New York, earlier this week when she spotted a bag in the middle of the road. It was a bank-deposit bag containing $15,000 in cash.
She turned the bag in to Plattsburgh police, who tracked down the bank and the money's owners, a local scrap metal business. An employee says she believes she placed the bag on top of her car during a stop at a local hardware store and drove off with the bag still on the roof.
Harwood says returning the money was simply the right thing to do.
She says a few years ago she found a pocketbook filled with money in a parking lot. Harwood mailed it back to Vermont woman who had lost it.
