Woman finds cash-stuffed boots at store

A Wisconsin woman says she found a wad of cash in a pair of boots she purchased at a thrift store.

Dimitra Anderson said she found the undisclosed amount of cash when she tried a pair of boots and found a sock with a bank envelope inside each of the boots, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Sunday.

The newspaper said Anderson bought the boots for $3, and did not mention the cash she found to the clerk.

Anderson and her husband Rick contacted the Journal Sentinel for help in finding the loot's owner. If they can't find the person, the couple say they plan to donate the money to charity.

I knew I wasn't going to keep it, no matter how much it was. If it's going to be mine, it's going to the Rescue Mission or the Humane Society, Dimitra Anderson said.
