A Virginia family reportedly stumbled upon nearly $1 million in cold hard cash lying in the middle of the road.

Emily Schantz, of Caroline County, told a local CBS affiliate that she was driving with her family Saturday when she ran over what they initially thought to be bags of trash on the road.

The family stopped and threw the bag — along with another one about 15 feet away — into the back of their pickup truck.

It wasn’t until closer inspection at home did the family realize they had motored away with the incredible amount of cash in tow.

“Inside of the bag, there were plastic baggies and they were addressed with something that said ‘cash vault,'” Schantz said.

The family said they rang the local deputies after making their discovery.

“For someone so honest and willing to give that almost a million dollars back, it’s exceptional on their part,” Maj. Scott Moser told the outlet.

It’s not clear how all that cash ended up on the road. Authorities are still investigating, but the deputies believe the mailbags full of cash belonged to the postal service and were intended to be dropped off at a bank.

Schantz said she was simply doing what was right.

“Do the right thing and return it,” she said. “Because it didn’t belong to us.”

It has nothing to do with being moral. If you try to spend that kind of money you're an idiot but there's a good chance it's being traced and you're going to wind up in jail.

This is something I have always wondered. It's a common trope in TV and movies for someone to have their bag of a million bucks with the idea to start a new life. I guess if you rationed it, and only spent it in small amounts on things like groceries, restaurants etc where it wouldn't seem out of place, and you'd have to spread the money around different establishments. Obviously buying a car, paying rent, or even buying a new TV would be a problem, so you'd still need to work. I think if you stayed sensible and didn't tell anyone, you could get away with it

"Nothing" to do with being moral?  That's a pretty cynical take.

I would think it would be incredibly tedious and time consuming to make sure you werent overdoing it. 

I can’t imagine anyone with social media making it work. Seems like people are always posting something they shouldn’t on those sites. 

I’m not saying people should commit crimes and hide them but nowadays people are live streaming themselves committing crimes and everyone wants to brag about something.

Well it depends.  You have no idea where the money came from.  Money can often be traced, especially if stolen from a bank.  And if it's some drug lord's money, you probably would rather have the cops find you.  But assuming it's untraceable, then yes, you split that shit up and store it in separate safety deposit boxes and dip into it for relatively small purchases.  Putting it in the bank even in smaller amounts or making large purchases is a huge red flag to at least the IRS, if not other law enforcement agencies, and you will be questioned as to where it came from if your lifestyle is not matching your tax returns.  Unless you actually know how to launder money, and almost no one does even though it looks easy on TV, you really can't really do much with it. And the funny thing about laundering money is that it takes so much time and effort that you may as well just really start a successful business.  The stress of getting caught isn't worth any of this.

If you had Jimmy Conway as your financial advisor you could make it work. Or die trying.

Being in the vending business I've worked with and around large sums of cash for the last 24 years, this "Money can often be traced" isn't really all that true. Unless a bank or institution intentionally spent the time to mark serial numbers on bills no, you aren't tracing shit. You'd be shocked how little attention is actually spent on cash money between a place likes ours then brinks then the banks..Brinks and the Banks REPEATEDLY lose/misplace large sums of cash and have no idea where it went..

When I was a kid, I did some very simple money laundering for my father. My sister did the higher amounts by purchasing money orders with cash at denominations of $100 to $1000 I would take cash to places like arcades/car washes drop a few $20 at a time into a coin dispenser, get the coins and move on. Then i'd head to a rotation of TD/Royal/BOM/Bank of Nova Scotia or CIBC banks to convert the coins back to cash. IT didn't seem like much, but we'd end up converting a few thousand some weeks for him. (This was money coming from less desirable individuals who would get surgery from him and pay in cash)

The strippers I frequent and my cocaine dealer are very honorable people and would never think of reporting me as they know 93% of the cash would go to them anyway.

If I found a bag of $1,000,000, which I've fantasized about to be honest, I'd probably keep it if at all possible.
