Metro North's Lost & Found Finds Some Strange Items


(New York, NY) -- Metro North says the lost and found room at Grand Central is growing by the day.

Shelves are bulging with items like lost coats, phones, laptops, and wallets, waiting to be found. The railroad says anything found on any Metro North train is brought back to the room and cataloged, so a rider can claim it. Twenty-eight-thousand items have ended up in the lost and found. The railroad says it holds onto the more valuable items for up to five years, and then it's sold off.

Over the years, workers say they have taken in lost hockey sticks, a welder's mask, prosthetic legs and a bag filled with seventeen-thousand dollars in cash.
