Ridiculous: Man Who Found $17,000 In Cash & Turned It Into Police Gets Fined $500

 

A couple of weeks ago police in the Chicago suburb of Rolling Hills were praising Robert J. Adams as a hero for turning in $17,021 in cash he found.

Yesterday, Adams was cited for filing a false report with the Rolling Meadows Police Department and fined $500 after police discovered he lied about where he had found the money.

On June 6 Adams discovered the bag of money outside of a Walgreens in Midlothian. He tried turning it into a nearby bank, but they said it didn't belong to them according to the Daily Mail.

Adams then took the money to another bank near his home in Rolling Hills and turned it in. He told police he found the cash outside of a newspaper stand there.

After an investigation by police and the FBI, the real story was revealed and Adams was subsequently cited and fined.

"I know now a little better than I knew then," he told the Chicago Tribune. "I feel very badly and understand why I should have told the truth. I wasn't looking for a reward. I was just doing the right thing. I accept the fine. I'm very sorry about this whole thing."

And police wonder why more people don't do what Adams did initially... smh.
