Plumber Who Found $600K In Wall Of Joel Osteen’s Church Says He Deserves Reward
The plumber who found $600,000 stashed inside the walls of a Houston megachurch is now saying he should get a reward.
The man found the cash and checks stuffed in envelopes while fixing a loose toilet at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Texas.
Police believe the money could be connected to a 2014 theft at the church.
The plumber, who wants to remain anonymous, said, “I didn’t solve their case, but I solved very key important clues as to what could or may have happened there.” Then added, “I feel like I should get something.”
At the time of the theft, Crime Stoppers had offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. Houston police say the investigation is ongoing.
