By, Faith Karimi (CNN)

It was cold cash — and a little soggy.

A man walking his dog spotted wads of notes floating in the Spalding River in the United Kingdom last month.

Authorities retrieved the 60,000 pounds — about $100,000 — and stashed it in a plastic bag before hauling it away

“Police are intending to consult with the Bank of England for assistance with a formal inspection of the money and a final accurate count,”¬†Lincolnshire police said Tuesday.

The cash was floating in the South Drove Drain near Spalding town center, authorities said.

Some of the notes had water damage, but a good chunk of the money appeared to be in good condition, authorities said.

Police will conduct a forensic examination of the money, which will help determine its origin.
