Roommates buy $20 used couch, find $40K in cash

By AP Wire Service

NEW PALTZ, N.Y. (AP), Three roommates who bought a used couch for $20 found $40,000 in cash stashed inside and returned the money to the 91-year-old upstate New York widow who had hidden it there.

WABC-TV in New York City reports (http://7ny.tv/1sREdYE ) that a State University of New York at New Paltz student and his two roommates found the money stuffed in envelopes hidden in the couch they bought from the Salvation Army in early March.

Third-year New Paltz student Reese Werkhoven of New York City says he found the first batch of cash. They searched the couch and found other envelopes stuffed with money.

One envelope had a woman's name on it. After debating what to do, the roommates contacted the woman and delivered the money to her the next day.
