On Monday, Wayne Sabaj, 49, an unemployed carpenter living in McHenry County, Ill., (about 60 miles northwest of Chicago) found some green stuff in his garden—about $150,000 worth, stuffed into two duffel bags.
The Chicago Tribune reports: “[Sabaj] contemplated his position for about a half hour, then – fearing that the money might have come from a bank robbery and someone might come back looking for it—he called the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department.”
Sabaj, clearly a realistic sort, did not toast his good fortune at the load of dough that literally appeared in his backyard, but said to his father, “We have enough problems, now we got another problem. Look what I found in the garden.”
At this point the police are baffled by the discovery, and for all they know, it could be that a leprechaun has traded in pots-of-gold for duffels of cash. Still they are examining the bags and their contents for clues and say they will work with Sabaj to see if he can keep the money if no true owner or explanation is found.
All I want to know: What kind of fertilizer does Sabaj use?
