Capt. Nate Sachs told WAVY that more than $20,000 was located at the end of last month in a bathroom at the Avalon Theater. Less than a week later, on May 2, officers found more than $10,000 in a bathroom at a Kentucky Fried Chicken.

“They were hidden in a way that you would have to know where to look to find them," Sachs said. "Wasn’t like you walk in and they were behind a trash can or anything like that. It was hidden.”

Police said that employees at both businesses found the cash.

“Truly bizarre. Just weird, especially two times in one week in our town,” Sachs noted. “There’s disbelief. It’s disbelief, and honestly, [the businesses are] just curious as to why the money would be there in the first place.”
