$55,000 found in St. Louis County Jail bathroom 

CLAYTON, Mo. - Someone at the St. Louis County Jail was flush with money. A correctional officer at the intake facility at the St. Louis County Justice Center last week found $55,000 stuffed behind a toilet paper dispenser.

The bundle of money was in $100 and $50 bills, said Clayton Police Chief Thomas Byrne.

Officials interviewed inmates about the money, but none admitted knowing anything about the stashed cash.

The money was placed in a special bank account until the owner can be determined, Byrne said.

"Oh, it belongs to me. It was an advance for whacking the schmuck in cell block D who was gonna testify."
