More than $100,000 in cash was found inside an old television that was being processed at a recycling plant in Barrie, Ont., and police say the money was a man’s lost inheritance. The shocking discovery was made in January by an employee, who uncovered a cash box inside the TV as it was dismantled. The recycling company then contacted police. “There was like, four stacks of $50 bills, and I knew it was a large amount of money,” Rick Deschamps, general manager for GEEP told CTV Barrie. Inside the cash box were documents that helped lead police to the money’s rightful owner: a 68-year-old man.
