A woman has found herself torn after finding ‘drug money’ stashed in a ‘crack’ on the bottom of a pair of second-hand shoes – and now she doesn’t know what to do with it
A woman has found herself torn after finding ‘ drug money ‘ hidden inside a pair of second-hand shoes online – as she doesn’t know if she should keep it or not.
TikTok user Malaika shared the find with her followers on social media and said she’d bought a pair of fluffy boots online and noticed a crack on the sole of the left shoe.
When she investigated further, she found there was an envelope inside the recessed area, and inside that, there was a wad of £20 notes.
Soon people began commenting on her video and said that she had a ‘free pass’ encouraging Malaika to keep the money for herself.

A man found himself in a moral quandary after buying a second hand safe on eBay for £80 – as it had £20,000 inside and the previous owner asked for it back.
James Labrecque decided to sell the heavy-duty safe as he didn’t have the combination to open it and to him it was useless, so he put it on eBay.
A determined buyer snapped it up and managed to prise it open with brute force, and they were presumably pleasantly surprised to find £20,000 inside.
James, flabbergasted at his bad luck, asked the buyer for at least some of the money back – but they refused, and said it was finders keepers.
