235,000 euros worth of gold recovered in Utrecht

If you were just walking around the streets and spot a huge chunk of gold just lying around, waiting to be picked up, what would you do? Would you hand it over or would you keep it for yourself? Well, someone found a piece of 235,000 euros worth of gold in Utrecht last Friday, and he diligently handed it over to the police, reports NU.nl.Β 

The piece of gold fell out of a delivery van. According to NU.nl, there are speculations that the driver of the delivery van left the side door open after he had loaded the piece of gold from the Royal Mint.

When it was found missing, the owner of the piece of gold put out an advertisement which said that anybody who would find it would get 25,000 euros. They also mentioned that it would be best to hand it over to the police as it cannot be sold.

Would you have done the same? Let us know in the comments below!
