The age-old saying ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’ held particular resonance for one old woman in Irbid, who accidentally sold an old can as scrap after forgetting she had was harbouring 25,000 JOD cash and 26,000 JOD in gold jewelry inside
Jordanian police were quick to respond to the mishap after the woman lodged a complaint when she realised she had accidentally sold the treasure to a scrap collector.
A team was formed to investigate and collect information on the incident, and two suspects were arrested after their houses were searched and the loot discovered inside.
The money and gold have now been returned to its rightful owner.
