Man Finds $43,000 in Couch — What He Does Next Is Even More Amazing

(WNEM Michigan) What would you do if you found thousands of dollars in a piece of furniture you had purchased?

That’s what happened to one local man.

“It still boggles my mind,” said Howard Kirby, customer.

Kirby likes to shop at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Owosso.

He purchased a couch from the store in December for his man cave, but this weekend he made a shocking discovery.

The couch was filled with thousands of dollars in cash.

“I still have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming or something,” Kirby said.

A total of $43,170 was found in the ottoman cushion.

Kerby said he didn’t feel right keeping the money. So he reached out to the store to find out who had donated the couch.

Kirby said an attorney told him he had no legal obligation to give the money back, but he felt he had to morally.

Kirby said he could’ve used the money – he needs a new roof badly – but he feels better knowing the money is in the rightful hands.
