    Cash Appeared on Their Streets for Years. Now, Villagers Know Why.

    Cash Appeared on Their Streets for Years. Now, Villagers Know Why. - The New York Times

    The police say two people left £26,000 on the streets of Blackhall Colliery “to give something back” to the community.

    LONDON — For nearly six years, money seemed to be falling from the sky onto the streets of a village in northeastern England.

    Residents of the village, Blackhall Colliery, regularly found neat bundles of 20-pound notes, then promptly handed the money to the police. The bundles often amounted to 2,000 pounds, or about $2,600.
    ================================================== =============
    The police have now found that the money was left by 2 persons who 'wanted to give something back to the village.'

    I'm surprised they didn't get fined for littering.

    Been following this story for a couple of years as it's a nearby county. It's a lovely story - the two people didn't even know each other and the citizens of Blackhall Colliery always handed the money over to police rather than just pocket it.

    Local news states the police then handed the money over to the finders after a statutory period.
