Cab Driver Finds $300,000 Cash Stash In Backseat

LAS VEGAS (December 24, 2013) Las Vegas cab driver Gerardo Gamboa thought someone left a bag of chocolates in the back seat, but when he checked, he discovered the stash was actually cash and lots of it.

Gamboa was making a pickup Monday at the Bellagio when a hotel doorman spotted the brown paper bag in the backseat of the cab and handed it to him.

At a red light the Checker Cab driver's curiosity got the best of him.

To his surprise, he found six bundles of $100 bills in the bag totaling $300,000.

Gamboa called his dispatcher and then took the money to the company's main office.

Las Vegas police and casino officials were able to link the money to a well-known poker player whom they declined to identify.
