Christmas came early for one man in Paris!
On Friday, a homeless man walked away from Charles de Gaulle airport in France with 300,000 euros — which is $354,000 — according to multiple reports.
According to The New York Times, the man — whom local police recognized as among the homeless population who slept in the area near the airport — had been looking through the trash when he came across the door of a cash management company called Loomis in terminal 2F at the airport. Upon leaning against the door, he realized it was unlocked, after which he went inside and walked out with two bags of cash.
