They are nice quality CCTV pics, was it another case of theft by finding? money left at a self service till?

I have found money on several occasions in supermarkets and a bank card still in the machine at self service tills, which on each occasion I handed into customer services, I very rarely shop in large supermarkets so it would appear to me, money must be left behind on a regular basis.
A gentleman also dropped ten pounds in Boots in Helston and hadn't realised, I think getting towards Christmas people are more in a hurry but it does seem to be a continuous problem year round at self service tills.

I spoke to a Asda employee about this issue and they do actively keep an eye out for this happening with quite good results. But as you can imagine with the hecticness of that area the odd one will slip through. It's a shame the screen doesn't have a large type and a loud sound to remind the customer about the cash back dispensed.

I do not think anyone should ever lay blame on any staff in a supermarket at all, it is up to each individual to be responsible for their own money, however, what surprises me is the percentage of people however small that might be, that believe it is right to keep money found. Would someone go into another persons house and if they happened to find money on the floor or somewhere, keep it for themselves! How I personally view the situation, is that any lost money belongs to the person who lost it and they have a right to a timescale in which to reclaim it, additionally, I think if the money is in a supermarket/shop then if not claimed by the owner, the money would technically belong to the supermarket.

I agree with GZM, the only person responsible would be the customer. So, is this what happened in ADSA with these women?
