'Bags and bags' of money found stashed in bathroom wall at Joel Osteen's megachurch (Raw Story link): A plumbing repair at televangelist Joel Osteen's megachurch in Houston reportedly led to the discovery of "bags and bags" of cash and checks in a bathroom wall.
"Justin said he started working on the toilet and had to remove the tile and insulation," the station reports. "Once he removed the insulation, he discovered about 3,000 envelopes full of checks. Some had cash in it. Justin said he called the church’s maintenance supervisor and had to stay at the church for almost seven hours."
Houston police investigators later questioned Justin and removed the rest of the wall, discovering "bags and bags" of money and checks.
"Justin said the church or HPD never thanked him or reached out to him about $25,000 reward money," the station reported, referring to the reward that was offered following the 2014 theft. "Justin said he even called Crime Stoppers about reward money, but never heard back. He even tried reaching out to Joel Osteen but hasn’t heard back."
Mod: Remember a year or so back when Osteen wouldn't allow the poor and homeless to shelter at his "church" during a hurricane? Maybe he feared they'd find his cash stash.
