How cool is this?

http://petapixel.com/2015/01/07/urban-exploration-photographer-finds-stash-cash-abandoned-house/



Honestly, my first thought was "I'd keep the money and keep my mouth shut", but after reading the article further I am fairly certain i wouldn't do that.

Amazing all that old stuff is just laying around there. I wonder what the back story is? It looks like the residents just up and left.

From the article comments:

These laws vary by state. However, generally a charge of B&E is predicated on intent to commit another criminal act, generally burglary, but could also be defacement, etc. B&E is a felony. Trespass is typically a misdemeanor. However, in many states a charge of trespass requires an individual to ignore a command to leave. That command could be a verbal statement by the owner or a "No Trespassing" sign displayed on the premises. So, simply entering a building owned by another party (regardless of its state of abandonment) is not necessarily a crime. For example, a drunk who enters his neighbor's house thinking its his/her own and falls asleep is, in many states, committing no crime unless and until they ignore the real homeowners command to leave. Under these conditions the urban explorer/photographer in this story may not have been guilty of any crime -- felony or misdemeanor -- and should be commended for his honest efforts to return the money.


Not B&E and misdemeanor trespassing at worst.

Cool story... would have been hard to not keep the money.

Charged for going into the house. If it was truly abandoned it should have been placarded by the city/county it is in. Making it an easy criminal trespass charge. If it's not placarded, there is stull an "official" owner.

In some place it's not illegal to enter an abandoned place that's not cordoned off, not sure about there though.

Drug money from a street vendor.

As has been said, burglary requires the intent to commit a crime within the building and trespass cannot be that crime. Trespass, at least in most states, requires a warning of some sort. If there was no verbal warning and no "no trespassing" sign, then it's a nothing in most states.

Consider the following real story:

Homeowner had a roommate who paid rent. Homeowner evicted roommate. Roommate's mail went to homeowner's home and homeowner refused to give it to roommate. When homeowner was at work, roommate (remember, now evicted) opened a window she knew did not lock, retrieved her mail, and walked out the front door. Homeowner called police, police interviewed roommate, roommate admitted to everything, and police sought arrest warrant for Burglary to a Dwelling (punishable by up to 15 years in Florida State Prison). The prosecutor denied the warrant as there was no intent to commit a crime therein. Further, no warrant was granted for Trespass to a Dwelling because the roommate had never been "trespassed."

Made for an angry homeowner. But I think it's a fun story to illustrate the way the law works. A person who did not live in the home did literally break in. No crime was committed.

Shitty neighborhood I lived in, had MANY abandoned house, when I was 9 years old, we checked out a few of them.
Found amazing treasures....... Matches, lighterfluid, .22 ammo, reloading supplies, plumbing supplies, etc.
Also, " Collected " a vast amount of scrap copper and batteries from abandoned vehicles, after first 'finding' an abandoned shopping cart to push it around in.

Exactly. If it was vacant and abandoned it would have been posted by the city. If it wasn't posted it is still someone's property. Finding the victim may be hard, but still it's someone's house and things.

Not a good idea to publicize it. In before the IRS audit. "What, you thought you didn't have to declare that 7 grand? Haha, bend over."

Something about that is weird to me.

Usually if someone vacates a house, they take all their shit.

I guess unless the people who lived there were elderly and died and the grand kids didn't do anything about the house.

Honestly, these attitudes are why it never pays to publicly do the right thing.

Or for that matter, publicly do much of anything. Someone somewhere will be pissed off by it and go running to mommy government.

There was a house in Columbus, Ohio that sat unattended for years after the elderly owner passed. It was in a fairly shady neighborhood. When someone finally took possession and went inside, they found jewelry, firearms, all sorts of stuff. The garage contained a few antique vehicles. A burglar could have had a field day.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 8:40:06 PM EST
Looks like the elderly occupant probably died and the family never cleaned out the house. I don't think the house is "abandoned," and entry into it probably wasn't legal.

Keeping the money would have been outright theft IMB.

A guy I know did odd jobs on the side. A little old house burned down in his hometown. The debris sat untouched for years. Someone bought the lot and hired him to clean up the mess. He found a shit ton of pre 64 silver coins. Must have been a box hidden in the attic or something. If I recall it was close to $300 face.
