Couple find nearly $12K in 'cold cash'
JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- A Janesville couple are hoping they will be allowed to keep the nearly $12,000 in cash they found in their refrigerator when they moved into an apartment.
Mesler cried as she talked about the money she found while cleaning the refrigerator in her apartment in early December.
"If it is determined that the money is the proceeds from the sale of illegal drugs, then it would be contraband, and on behalf of Janesville taxpayers, we would seize that money," Moore said. But, he added, that has not yet been determined.
What would they do with it?
