Woman sued after returning lost money to owner

A PANCAKE seller who picked up 1,700 yuan (US$249) and returned it to the owner has been sued because the owner alleged she didn't return all his money.

Zhou Cuilan, 59, from Huai'an City of Jiangsu Province, received a court subpoena yesterday, today's Yangtse Evening News reported.

Zhou told the newspaper she happened to see a stack of money in bushes while she was selling pancakes on November 6,

At first she handed the bundle to a customer, Wang Changyu, because he said it could belong to a neighbor. But hours later she decided to find the owner herself, and asked for the money back.

Next morning the owner Zhou Jiwei, 22, heard about the story and visited her home to get his money back. But he said he had lost 8,200 yuan in total, the newspaper said, and demanded the other 6,500 yuan from Zhou.

The witness Wang has also been called to court, the newspaper said.
