$10 DVD had $1,400 hidden in case

BELLEVILLE, Mich., Aug. 26 (UPI) -- A Belleville, Mich., woman said she accidentally sold a DVD at a garage sale that contained at least $1,200 hidden in its case.

Tracy Holmes said she sold her husband's "Sin City" DVD for $10 at her garage sale because she thought he wasn't likely to watch it again anytime soon, The Ann Arbor (Mich.) News reported Tuesday.


However, her husband, Fred, asked her about the DVD about a week later and revealed to her that he had hidden at least $1,200 in the case for a Christmas trip to Disney World with his wife and their three young children.

"He thought apparently (the DVD case) was a great spot to hide it from me, and it was," Holmes said to the newspaper. "I didn't think to look there."

Holmes said she is holding out hope that the buyer, who she described as a 6-foot-tall man in his 50s or 60s, will discover the money and return it to the family.

"My kids are pretty upset about the whole thing, and I feel just heartsick," she told the News. "It's always been a dream of mine to go to Disney World at Christmas."
