A thief stole a briefcase and threw it away without noticing it contained 10,000 euros ($13,660) in cash, German authorities said Thursday.
"I think they'll be annoyed when they find out," said a spokesman for police in the western city of Duesseldorf.
The case's owner, a 57-year-old Iranian businessman, had reported it missing as he prepared to board a flight in Duesseldorf airport. A policewoman later found it -- ransacked, but still containing the two cash-filled envelopes.
What is actually even more amusing is what's going to happen to hte businessman: you've got to have a reason to carry more than € 6,500 in cash these days, got to prove that you've paid the tax.
