State treasury returns $150K in unclaimed property at Baton Rouge event


BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — The Louisiana Department of the Treasury has returned $150,506 in unclaimed money to hundreds of residents during an event in Baton Rouge.

State Treasury John Kennedy, in a statement Monday, said one lady found $20,000 during Saturday's Unclaimed Property event at the Mall of Louisiana. Kennedy says a person has a better chance of finding unclaimed property than of winning the lottery.

Since 1972, the program has returned more than $373 million to almost 600,000 Louisiana citizens.
