Bundles of cash found in Ohio bathrooms

MARYSVILLE, Ohio (WCMH) – There’s a money mystery in Marysville, Ohio, after tens of thousands of dollars were found in a couple of bathrooms around the city.

The money was found in publicly accessible bathrooms, according to the Marysville Police Division (MPD). Capt. Nate Sachs said more than $20,000 was found in a bathroom at the Avalon Theater last weekend. Less than a week later on Thursday night, more than $10,000 was found 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. Wasn’t like you walk in and they were behind a trash can or anything like that. It was hidden,” Sachs said.

Employees at both of the establishments found the cash, according to Sachs.

“Truly bizarre. Just weird, especially two times in one week in our town,” he said. “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.”

Investigators are currently trying to figure out where the cash came from, who put it in the bathrooms, and who it was meant for. Sachs said this type of find is a first for him, never having seen anything like it in his 18-year career.

“We’re looking at the avenues that they’re probably connected,” he said. “At this point with an open investigation, we have not linked it up yet. But anything’s possible at this point. We’re just looking at everything.”

The MPD does not believe there are any additional bundles of cash hidden in Marysville establishments. Anyone with information on one of the finds is urged to call police.
