A plumber called Houston, Texas radio show The Bull with a tale that sounds like something out of a mystery story, according to some.
He claims to have discovered a stash of cash in a wall while working at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood megachurch.
“There was a loose toilet in the wall and we removed the tile…well they removed the tile,” said the caller. “[I] Went to go remove the toilet and I moved some insulation away and about 500 envelopes fell out of the wall.”
Lakewood Church confirmed in a statement that an unspecified chunk of the money and checks were discovered while repair work was being done. They stated that they immediately informed the Houston Police Department and that they were aiding in the investigation.
“But I mean it was just like unbelievable the things he was telling us they found in the wall,” said George Lindsey, co-host of the Morning Bullpen.
“I went ahead and contacted the maintenance supervisor that was there and I went ahead and turned it all in,” said the caller.
“We’ve been talking about things that you found of value and we have been blown away,” said Lindsey. The caller said the envelopes were full of cash and checks.
“He also relayed to us that in 2014 there was big story about money being stolen from the Lakewood mega-church,” said Lindesy.
The Houston Police Department is still looking into a seven-year-old case involving the disappearance of $600,000. The amount of money discovered by the plumber is unknown, but the case raises a lot of questions.🤔
