I found a wallet while on a walk. It has 85 dollars and a GameStop gift card. No I.d whats the law on keeping it?
No id and no way of knowing who it belongs to = finders keepers.
There's no way to return it unless you stand on the same spot for hours, maybe even days.
I doubt giving it to the police is a thing since without an id there's no way to say it belongs to someone.

Holy shit nigger
if there wasnt any way to identify the owner, you can keep it
>Penal Code 485 PC -- California's law against appropriating (or misappropriating) lost property -- prohibits you keeping property that you find when there are clues identifying its true owner.1 You are not required to go to extremes to identify and contact the owner. But the law says you must make a reasonable attempt to do so.

well, if you really care about returning it or finding the original owner you can try.
But honestly, kids are so careless and stupid. Yeah, the kid will be super upset, (if he's a robot, probably upset about it for the rest of his miserable life), but they lose stuff all the time. Source: I managed a Chuck E Cheese's. Kids are just, well they're just super bad at life. That's why they're kids.
I'd keep it, maybe browse my local craiglist lost and found for a day or 2. But he probably doesn't even know where he lost it, so even if he went looking for it he's hopelessly fucked. Like we all are.
