ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. Robert Adams craved an ice-cold drink after finishing his shift on a sweltering workday, but not having enough money to buy the burrito he also wanted left him with two obvious choices: Stop at the ATM, or find a bag containing more than $17,000 in cash.

"I wanted to get a large horchata, which is almost like a rice or coconut milk," Adams told the Daily Herald (Arlington Heights) for a story published Wednesday. "I would have grabbed a chorizo burrito, too, but I didn't have enough money."

That changed Monday when the Chicago-area man stood at a Chase ATM in Rolling Meadows, looked down and discovered on the sidewalk near a newspaper box a clear plastic bag containing receipts, checks and $17,021 in cash mostly $20 and $100 bills bound by a rubber band.
"I see this plastic bag. It's clear plastic and it's half full of money," Adams said. "I figure this is a joke. Somebody took some napkins and made it look like money. This has to be a setup. People are going to look at me and start laughing."

Adams said he never had the urge to keep any of the money.
"It's not my money. I shouldn't take it. I don't care if you put another zero on there, I wasn't raised to take money that isn't mine," said Adams, a 54-year-old single man who lives in Arlington Heights and credits his deceased parents for teaching him right from wrong. "If I saw you drop it, I'd say, `Excuse me, sir. I think you dropped something.'"

The word "Chase" was printed on the bag, so Adams carried it inside the nearby branch.

"I walk up to the teller and say, `I think you might have left this outside,'" said Adams, figuring an employee left it behind after restocking the ATM. But employees told him the machine is filled from inside and the money didn't belong to the bank.

Adams then called police, who along with bank officials later determined the money was meant for an ATM in Midlothian and had been under the care of Loomis, an armored truck company. Rolling Meadows police took the money to the station, where it was picked up by a Loomis official.
Loomis officials said they were investigating, but have not said whether Adams will get a reward.

"I really don't know what happens with this situation," Adams said.
Onesimo Santillan, owner of the Senor Taco restaurant where Adams originally was headed to indulge his cravings, said the actions of his longtime customer don't surprise him.

"He has been coming in for years, always orders the same thing, very nice guy," Santillan said. "It's hard to find people like that, honest people."
Rolling Meadows Police Chief Dave Scanlan said Adams did good: "We all said right away that this guy deserves something credit for being an Honest Abe."

People and their stupid idiotic beliefs! You found $17,000, you idiot. The money is yours! KEEP THE DAMN MONEY! This guy should be shot for being so dumb. "It's not my money. I shouldn't take it. I don't care if you put another zero on there, I wasn't raised to take money that isn't mine."

Finders keepers really doesn't apply when you find 17 grand on the sidewalk. It's not like somebody dropped a $20. That money belongs to somebody.

$20 and $100 bills bound by a rubber band.
"It's [a] clear plastic [bag]and it's half full of money"
The word "Chase" was printed on the bag


Clearly armored truck money meant for a bank.
It's a write off. No brainer.

that or just get a checking account at a non chase bank and then use a chase ATM to withdraw 20 or so and get his with a $3.50 fee.


i would have gladly taken the money, played a round of golf at a top course, eating a five star meal and had some fun at the strip club, and sat on the rest or paid off some debt.

Hmmm. Is that right? If I came across $17,000 on the street and kept it, according to your KKK beliefs, that would make if a dirty disgusting nigger? It's $17,000, you dumbass. The man in the article couldn't even afford to buy himself lunch! Palehorse, if I'm a dirty disgusting nigger, what are the people who also said that they would've kept the money as well? Read the quotes below.

fuck chase

"Fuck Chase" Is that right? So, you would've kept the money too. But since you're white, that makes it perfectly ok but not ok because I'm black. Naturally, that makes me a thief. Such a double standard.

did he get a reward for returning the monies?

Not yet...maybe he'll get a burrito and drink which is why he was using the ATM. As for me, I would of kept it. These are the same banks that got us into a mess in 2008. I'm sure the dude that was accused of losing the money will get fired whether the money came back or not.

my mind says i wouldnt take it, but i know id snatch at least some of it, if not all. i used to think i wouldnt do that, but the other day in school in the bathroom i spotted a wallet and without thinking i ripped through it like an animal to check for money, but there was just some gay ass giftcards -___-

i'd put most in the savings, not all at once, but gradually, pay off a few smaller debts and allot a certain amount that i would use as spending money for whatever.


many people are absolute morons with money...acting like it has no value, but ive never been that stupid with it.

as long as im not drunk and in a strip club.

Dumbass returns a bag with $17,000 IN CAsh, Dumbass found a bag with at least $30,000 in cash.

He kept at least 1 stack to himself, not taking any of the money is impossible.

I'm serious! He called me a thief saying that I have a self-entitlement mentality (mainly due to race). However, other people have said that they'd keep the money but he didn't say anything to them because they're not black. Talk about a double standard. Honestly, what dumbass would return the money? Think about it. We're in a recession. People are losing their homes, cars, jobs, kids, etc. People could use that money. Like most people, Palehorse doesn't think things through. The guy is an idiot in my book. Frail skinhead ass motherfucker!
