PARIS (AP) - French police say a homeless man found a huge amount of cash last week at Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport and was able to leave the complex with 300,000 euros ($354,000).
Two police officers, who are not allowed to speak publicly on the case, said Thursday that video surveillance showed the man looking in the trash and leaning against a nearby door.
Airport police union official Jean-Yann William Airport told France Info television that "to his surprise, the door is opening, he's entering and finds out there's a huge amount of money" in the room of cash transport company Loomis.
Video then shows the man leaving the airport with two big bags.
Police recognized him as a homeless man living in the airport area. He is being actively sought.
