SEOUL, South Korea (WTHR) — A janitor in South Korea found a treasure in the trash at Incheon International Airport Thursday.

According to CNBC, local media reported the man found seven gold bars that were wrapped in newspaper and thrown away. A local news outlet said the gold belonged to a Korean man who instructed two other men to throw them away, fearing being searched in customs.

If no one claims the gold, the janitor, who has not been identified, will be able to keep it. If the owner does make a claim for it, the janitor would still be able to keep 5 to 20 percent of its market price, which would be between $16,250 and $65,000, according to the Korea Times.

However, if the gold is found to be linked to criminal activity, the janitor will not be able to have any part of it.
