GUILDERLAND, N.Y. - New York State Police are trying to find the woman who handed an on-duty trooper a holiday card with $1,000 cash inside.
Under New York law, state police can't accept such gifts.
Police say the woman told Trooper Christopher Maniscalco she had seen him doing a good job and wanted to say Merry Christmas and thank you. It wasn't until after his shift ended that the trooper opened the card and saw the money.
Police are seeking the public's help in finding the woman so they can either return the money or find out from the woman where she would like the donation to go.
