GLEN CARBON, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois Goodwill store sorting out whether $2,500 found in a donation pile was accidentally left or a gift isn’t having any trouble attracting people wanting to cash in.

The Belleville News-Democrat (https://bit.ly/1qcfCgV) reports that at last 15 people have tried to claim the money that turned up Monday in a donated article of clothing at the thrift store in Glen Carbon.

But a Goodwill spokeswoman, Stephanie Flynn, says those people weren’t able to accurately describe the clothing in question.

Goodwill’s policies dictate that the donor has 30 days to come by and claim the money. If that doesn’t happen, the money goes to the agency’s programs.

Goodwill’s staff has been reviewing video surveillance in hopes of identifying the donor.
