BRISTOL, Pa., March 27 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania woman said she found $30,000 in cash in a pile of clothes once belonging to her cousin's daughter's mother-in-law.

Carol Sutor of Bristol, Pa., said her cousin, who lives in Medford, N.J., called her recently to say her daughter's mother-in-law had died and asked if she wanted to look through the deceased woman's clothing for her own mother, Phillyburbs.com reported Wednesday.

"So I go through the clothes and I come across a canvas bag on a hangar. In the bag was a plastic bag," Sutor said. "So I'm thinking, well, maybe it's a pair of bedroom slippers or something. So I unwrapped the bag, and there was another bag in another bag in another bag, one of those deals, you know? So I'm thinking maybe what's in here are important papers. So I opened up the last bag, and got a surprise."

The surprise was $30,000 in $100 bills. Sutor said she knew the owner of the money was deceased but she decided to return it to the woman's family.

Sutor said her cousin's son-in-law gave her $1,000 of the money as a thank you for returning it.
