ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- Officials say 15 people are now claiming over $14,000 that was left in a south St. Louis County Goodwill donation box last week.
Instead of sorting through every claim, Goodwill officials say they will turn the matter over to a court to decide.
All 15 people will now have to petition the St Louis County Circuit Court for the money.
The money was found in the donation box of the Goodwill in the 10000 block of Baptist Church Road last Wednesday.
After reviewing surveillance video, store officials determined the donor was driving a green Ford F150 truck and was at the drop-off site at approximately 3 p.m.
Goodwill officials believe the money was mistakenly hidden in a bag of clothes.
It is not known if the money was found inside a donated item or if the donor was male or female. In order to eliminate false claims, store management is not sharing any further details.
