Throwing Money Away

A Columbus bank appears to have buried its mistake.

COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - A cache of cash found in the Columbus landfill was the result of a bank error, police said.

The money - more than $46,000 - was found on July 23 by a backhoe operator who was digging through mounds of garbage at the Pine Grove Landfill. That was about the same amount of money a Columbus bank official told the local FBI office in July 2002 the bank had misplaced.

The money was returned to the bank Friday. Officials asked police not to reveal the bank's name.

Someone must know what bank this is. I know I'd be a little leery about keeping an account there.

They're not releasing the name of the bank not to protect the bank, but to protect customer safety.

I can only imagine the riots that would break out among the bank's new dumpster divers.
