The incident occurred at the end of March this year, but it was not until mid-May that the police contacted the woman, who until then had not announced that she had found money in the machine.

It was surveillance cameras in the area that allowed the police to identify the woman who is now convicted of a bargain offence.

– If you find something that should be considered lost property, you should hand it in to the police as soon as possible, and I believe that it has been longer than as soon as possible, says Anna Christensson, prosecutor at the prosecutor's office in Jönköping.

The woman herself denies any wrongdoing. SVT News has been in contact with the woman, who does not want to comment on the punishment. She writes in a text message that the incident has ended and that she wants to move on.
