BERLIN (AP) — Police in the German town of Minden say a 25-year-old man who arrived last year as a refugee is their "hero of the day" after he found some 150,000 euros ($166,095) — and handed it to authorities.

The unidentified Syrian man discovered the money in a cupboard he had been given by a charitable organization.

Minden police said Tuesday that he found about 50,000 euros in cash and savings books containing more than 100,000 euros hidden under a board while assembling the furniture.

Police said in a statement that while small amounts of money are regularly handed in to authorities, "such a large sum is the absolute exception."

The man arrived in Germany last October as a refugee.
