GRA Rich BeggarThe municipal police in Granada were pretty impressed by a homeless man who was carting around over 18,000 euros in bank notes in a black, rubbish bag…

The 32-year-old man from Sevilla, who sleeps in the open on Calle Severo Ochoa, had the bin bag stuffed with thirty-three 500-euro notes, forty-two 50-euro notes, four 10-euro notes and two 5-euro ones.

They asked the man what he had in the bag and he replied about 6,000 euros, so they asked him where he had got them from but he was unable to give satisfactory reply.

The Police looked inside, did a double take, and then counted it – it turned out to be three times more than he had said, so the police took his name and DNI nº but did not arrest him. Oh, but they did keep the money.

The police are now busy trying to find out if somebody is ‘missing’ this sizeable quantity of bank notes.

As for the man, it turned out to be an expensive Christmas…
