A toilet cleaner in Australia found over $100,000 while cleaning ground floor toilets at a TV station's premises and a magistrate ruled last week that he can keep the bulk of it.

Mr Chamindu Amarsinghe found the money back in 2011 inside a sanitary bin. He recalled that he was too stunned and immediately called his supervisor who then called the police. 

No one laid claim on the money and police also could not determine its origins. So, earlier this month, Amarsinghe received a call he will remember for life. 

A$81,597 was his to keep. That's an awesome reward for an honest deed.
