Stuart man who found $3,000 in trash will get to keep it

STUART - A Stuart man who found $3,000 in the trash will get to keep it.

Warren Bendix plucked a framed picture of the space shuttle in the trash near his apartment.

He took the photo with him, but decided to change its frame. When he removed it, Bendix found $3,100 in bills behind the picture.

Bendix called the Stuart Police Department Saturday to report what he found.

The owners did come forward, saying the picture, along with other personal property, had been thrown in the trash by people cleaning the apartment for a family member who had moved out.

Stuart Police turned the funds over to Bendix today, who immediately deposited them in the bank.
