“Dear PoPville,

I was walking on U Street Saturday night when I found a significant amount of money (over $100) laying on the sidewalk. It had clearly fallen out of someone’s wallet, and after looking around and seeing nobody nearby who it belonged to, and no clear indication if who it belong to, I picked up. I thought about bringing it to the police station, but I’m not sure if they would accept it, and if they did, if it would just sit around an evidence locker forever. My first instinct is to donate it – most likely to the Louisiana flood relief efforts, but I’m wondering if anybody has any experience returning lost money to the police and if that really is my best course of action. Thanks!”
