NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WHDH) — A Connecticut rabbi and his wife made quite the discovery after pulling apart an old desk they purchased off of Craigslist. The couple originally had to pull the desk apart so that it could fit through the door. That's when they found $98,000.

"Behind the drawers there was this plastic bag, like a shopping bag I'm talking about. In the bag, I can already see through the bag, there's, it looks like a $100 bill," said the rabbi.

The Good Samaritans immediately called the original owner of the desk. The original owner had stuffed her inheritance in the desk and forgot where she put it.
