Flickr User Yomanimus

Officials are praising a Transportation Security Administration screener who turned in $5,000 cash that he found on the floor at Newark Liberty International Airport.John Deschamp was in Terminal C when he spotted something out of the ordinary on Dec. 27.

The 36-year-old tells The Star-Ledger of Newark the cash was wadded up, some of it bound by a paper band, as if it had been stuffed in a pocket.

Officials say no security cameras were focused on the area.

The money was turned over to United Airlines because it was found near the United Elite Access check-in desk. A United spokeswoman says it will likely go to a charity if no one claims it.
