NY man finds $8K along road, returns it to owner

BLOOMFIELD, N.Y. — A New York man who found a bag with $8,000 in cash along a road has returned the money to its owner.

Nick Optis, of Mendon, N.Y., came across a money bag Monday morning in Bloomfield, south of Rochester. After finding the cash and checks made out to nearby White’s Farm Market, he brought the bag to the farm stand.

Its owner, Chip White, told the Democrat and Chronicle of Rochester the money was the weekend’s revenue.

An employee had apparently lost it on the way to the bank when he opened and closed his car door after seeing it was partially ajar.
