$750,000 In Checks, Money Orders In Trash

BOCA RATON, Fla., (UPI) –  A Florida man said he discovered more than $750,000 worth of checks and money orders in the trash at a gas station.

Demetri Cirillo said he was vacuuming out a rental van at the Marathon Gas Station in Boca Raton about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday when he spotted a stack of U.S. Treasury checks, American Express travelers checks, U.S. Postal Service money orders and Money Gram money orders, WPEC-TV, West Palm Beach, reported Wednesday.

Cirillo said the checks were made out to people in several states, including California, Idaho, Kansas and New Jersey. He said some of the checks were worth more than $156,000 each.

“I just came over here, I saw these checks laying in the garbage, so I picked them out. I started looking and my jaw dropped! I was totally dumbfounded! When I looked inside there, I was shocked!” Cirillo said.

Cirillo said he turned the 59 checks and money orders over to Boca Raton police.
