Explorers take us inside a former Illinois bank now abandoned and found money left inside. If this was you would you take the money?

I am not sure how guarded and secure this former bank is, but explorers decided to take a chance to risk getting arrested to investigate the former bank. The building itself is (I'm sure) at one time an elegant bank with high ceilings and decor that is left. But as they were looking through the former bank they came across some money left behind.

In the video you can see that they did not take the money and it doesn't seem to be a lot there, but like they always say "Every Little Bit Counts." For me, no I would not take it, you have no idea how long that money has been sitting there if it's even useable, oh and IT'S STEALING!

There could also be serial numbers or something that law enforcement could track, especially if you are filming yourself taking it.

The old-fashioned vault is something interesting and you wonder how much money and safety deposit boxes could that vault hold.

I can't imagine that this building is not under some sort of surveillance or protection. Having this massive building in Chicago though seems like a waste of space for something new and improved to be built on the property.
