Annie’s Sour Cream+Onion .. hmm (posted by alexander)

Debra Rogoff was more curious than ecstatic when her daughter found $10,000 in a cracker box. After all, who would leave money in such a place?

“We just thought, ‘This is someone’s money,'” she said. “We would never feel good about spending it.”

Rather than go on a shopping spree, the Irvine woman went to police and was initially told the money could be a drug drop.

Police later heard from store managers at Whole Foods in Tustin that an elderly woman had come in a few days earlier, hysterical because she had mistakenly returned a box of crackers with her life savings inside.

The Lake Forest woman, whose identity was not released, had lost faith in her bank and decided the box would be a safer place for the $10,000.

Luckily for her, the box of Annie’s Sour Cream and Onion Cheddar Bunny crackers were bought by the Rogoffs, who discovered the money in an unmarked white envelope on Oct. 10.

The Rogoffs never heard from the woman and didn’t receive a reward, but Rogoff did return to Whole Foods a couple weeks later.

“I asked them if I could have another box of crackers,” she said with a laugh. The store obliged.
