Police: Man finds decaying money in W. Pa. woods

CLARION, Pa. (AP) — State police are trying to find the owner of a large stash of decaying cash that was found in some western Pennsylvania woods.

Troopers from the barracks in Clarion say the money was found in Highland Township, about 60 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

Gary Rex tells WPXI-TV (http://bit.ly/12nm8SS ) that he was walking from his camp and found the money in an old tree stump and some scattered on the ground.

Police have traced the serial numbers and there are no reports the money has been stolen. Police aren’t saying how much money is there because they want whoever claims it to provide that information.

It wasn’t immediately clear if police are releasing the dates the money was printed as investigators couldn’t immediately be reached Thursday.
