Rabbi finds $98,000 in Craigslist desk

The rabbi and a friend went to pick up the item from a woman who lived just outside of New Haven. It fit perfectly in the minivan, but not through the door to Muroff’s study. “It missed being able to pass through the door by a quarter of an inch. It was so frustrating!” Muroff recalled.

When attempts to remove the study door from its hinges failed, Muroff, his wife Esther, and the friend resorted to taking the desk apart. They took off the file cabinet drawers and found a plastic shopping bag behind them.

“I thought I saw a bill, and I guessed there was maybe something like $100 in it,” the rabbi said. But the bag was rather heavy, and when Muroff looked inside he found far more than just a C-Note. By the time he and his wife finished counting up the packets of bills, they were holding close to $100,000 in their hands.

Muroff said the notion of keeping the loot never occurred to him. “We knew we had to return the money. There was no question it was the right thing to do,” he said.
