FLORIDA – A Central Florida man makes quite a discovery inside an old Christmas tree box.

It was filled with 50 thousand dollars in bonds.

Anthony Garafalo, a single father, found the tree a few years ago while looking for scrap metal to sell.

“I happened to see a Christmas tree in a box, said Christmas tree and so it was all taped up and sealed, so I figured well, he was only one month old at the time, this is three years ago and I figured, I would just say the tree until he could appreciate Christmas.”

Garafalo says it was an exciting find but he “has no right to that.”

He is trying to track down the rightful owner.

Donald Tran owns the bonds, his beneficiary is Theodore Tran.
