Pair trying to catch fish net $87,000 in cash
SYDNEY—Two Australian teenagers who found almost 100,000 Australian dollars ($87,000) in cash during a fishing trip have handed it over to police—after spending some time thinking about it. The pair discovered the money earlier this month near the New South Wales town of Nimbin—a center of hippie culture where members of numerous communes annually celebrate a festival to promote cannabis use.
The teenagers contacted police on Friday, after revealing the find to an unidentified adult they know and getting some legal advice, police said in a statement.
