Found a 10.00 bill on a store floor, the manager said that she saw me on camera pick it up, I denied it and left. Is this theft?

DETAILS

Store was closed, manager said a lady dropped it, no lady was around?

ANSWER

The answer is yes. It meets the definition of theft in mn. The issue is whether the property is considered lost or abandoned. Money, by its nature is never considered abandoned. Therefore the owner maintains a property interest in it.
