CLARION, Pa. —

Pennsylvania State Police are investigating after a man found a large amount of decaying money in Clarion County last week.

According to police, the money was found April 23 in a wooded area near Highland Drive in Highland Township. Authorities haven’t said exactly how much money was found.

State police told Channel 11’s Vince Sims that the money was discovered when a man walked from his camp into the woods to look at a tree tag. On his way back, he saw the money in an old stump and on the ground, police said.

“I'm out here all the time. I haven't spent enough I guess,” Gary Rex told Sims.

Police said that they ran some serial numbers through the federal government and none came up as stolen.

Anyone with information on the money is asked to contact police.
