If you were passing an ATM and saw those sparkling 500 euro notes poking out of the machine with no one in the vicinity, what would you do? Walk up to the machine, grab the money and make a run for it? Or dutifully hand it in to the police? Well, a man in Wageningen found over €500 in an ATM on Sunday evening and decided to turn it in to the police.
Man dubbed ‘Hero of the day’
In a Facebook and Twitter post, the Wageningen Police explained how the man handed the cash over and has been proclaimed the hero of the day. The police have teamed up with the bank and together they are now searching for the rightful the owner of the money.
The police cheekily add to not send them a private message if you forgot your money (I am sure many people will try and pull that trick…)

Earlier this year, Twitter was successful in reuniting a woman with a man who gifted her a bike when she was a refugee child over 20 years prior. Will the same success be achieved in this story?
