Found: Money - Would you keep it?

A driver in San Diego found a little over $700 while driving on the Interstate.  There were some drug-running suspects on the loose and they let some of the money fly out of their window, which is how it ended up on the road.  

The driver is keeping the money and considers this to be a lucky event.... would you keep the money?  What about some of the people who say that this money is drug money?

I, personally, think that this person is 100% correct in keeping the money.  I recall all of the old sayings:  "possession in 9/10ths of the law" and "finders keepers, losers weepers".  In this case, the weeping loser is the government :-)

Sad thing is if this money was gotten from the authorities then they know what the bill numbers are and will track it back to them. I probably wouldn't be able to keep it because of my conscious but wouldn't look badly at the person keeping to some extent.

Interesting point.
