He was looking for greens, but ended up with a bagful of dough.

An unemployed Illinois carpenter who was digging for some dinner veggies found $150,000 in his garden - and promptly turned it into police.

Wayne Sabaj, 49, from McHenry County, northwest of Chicago, found a duffel bag packed with $20 bills on Monday night while searching for some broccoli in his backyard garden, WGN television reported.

Sabaj said he brought the money inside to show his dad. After mulling their options for about 30 minutes, the two decided to call the cops.

Sabaj said he and his pop feared whoever stashed the cash might come looking for it later.

"I told him, we have enough problems, now we got another problem," the woodworker told WGN.

"It wasn't my money," he added. "What am I going to do? I don't know where it came from. With my luck it came from a bank robbery, and I'd be charged with bank robbery."

McHenry County Sheriff's officers who showed up to the house found a second bag hidden near where Sabaj found the first one.

The two bags contained around $150,000, authorities said.

Investigators said they don't know where the money came from and that no major robberies have been reported in the area.

The bags were being checked for fingerprints and other evidence, police said.

Meanwhile, cops left a sheriff department's business card in their hiding spot in Sabaj's garden that said, "Please Call," the station reported.

Right? Whoever left the cash is probably reading the article saying to himself "$300,000.00"

Would have taken that green and went straight to my dealer and copped some green

And if anybody came looking for it with fire in they eyes, well I got 2 glocks and when they pissed they have fire in they eyes too straight up.

150k? I would have dropped everything and left town that night on the Greyhound. Would have stayed in a hotel for a few days until I came up with a strategy.
