Couple finds $98K in desk, returns money to owner

A Connecticut rabbi and his wife said they had no choice but to do the right thing after they found thousands of dollars in a desk they bought off Craigslist.

The couple found a huge pile of cash after they purchased the desk for $200.

When they brought the desk home, it wouldn’t fit through the door, so they had to take the desk apart.

Behind the drawers, they discovered a plastic bag filled with cash.

"We open it up and it's full of cash. We count it up and there's $98,000 cash sitting in the bag," Noah Muroff said.

The couple called the original owner who was relieved after realizing that is where she had hidden much of her savings and had forgotten about it when she sold the desk.
