Fishing teens reel in $87,000

SYDNEY (AP) - September 21, 2009

Two Australian teenagers found 100,000 Australian dollars ($87,000) in cash during a fishing trip.

They admit spending some time thinking about it, before turning the money over to police.

Inspector Greg Moore says the cash stash was found near an area where communes celebrate an annual pot festival.

Police are investigating if the cash is related to a crime. But Moore tells the Australian Broadcasting Corp. the teens might be able to claim the money if a legitimate owner isn't found.
