Working at a recycling plant isn’t a particularly glamorous job. Sorting through stuff like cans, paper and card is very important, but it isn’t all that interesting. However, what one man found on the plant conveyor belt surprised everybody.
Sean Holley was having a normal day at the Republic Services recycling center in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. But he was about to make an astonishing discovery that would make the news across the state. On that Friday in July 2017, Holley came across a safe on the center’s pre-sort line.
It wasn’t every day that something like a safe turned up on the belt, so Holley took a closer look. Consequently, he discovered a gym bag caught in the corner of the hefty metal box. Additionally, it seemed that the safe had been sawed open in an effort to get at the contents.
