Students find $40k hidden in couch, return it to elderly widow

Standard

Three roommates in New York state unwittingly made perhaps the wisest investment of their lives when they bought a used couch for $20, only to discover $40,000 in cash stashed inside. The honest students then returned the money to its rightful owner.Reese Werkhoven, a New York City native attending the state university at New Paltz, and his two roommates – Cally Guasti and Lara Russo – were shopping at a second-hand store when they found a perfect couch for their home.“It’s pretty ugly and it smells,” Russo told LittleRebellion.com, a student-run blog. “But it was the only couch that fit the right dimensions for our living room.”When the trio sat down for the first time, Werkhoven noticed a plastic envelope containing a thick stack of twenty dollar bills adding up to $700.“I almost peed,” he said. “The most money I’d ever found in a couch was like fifty cents. Honestly, I’d be ecstatic to find just $5 in a couch.”
