Nanango police have found the original owners of a stash of cash found in a TV cabinet bought from the Hervey Bay Recycling Market in June.
A member of the public bought the secondhand cabinet, branded “Everyday Country”, at North Nikenbah on June 27.
A police spokesman said that once the buyer arrived home and began unloading the cabinet from his vehicle, one of the drawers opened and a substantial amount of cash fell out.
The man went to Nanango Police Station and handed the cash over to officers.
The owners, a couple from Hervey Bay aged in their 50s, were made aware of the missing money via social media and contacted Nanango Police Station.
They were incredibly grateful to the member of the public for being honest and handing it into police.
The money has since been returned to its rightful owners.
