The box has a lock on it, and on the lid there is this little plaque-type thing stating who the box and its contents belong to, with John's address.
One day John goes to put some money in his box only to find that a developer has bought that land and has dug up the tree and surrounding area to start the construction of new homes. The developer's workers found John's box.
What do you think should happen to John's box and his money? Does it technically belong to the developer seeing as he purchased the land it was buried in? Or is the developer legally/morally obligated to give John his box+money, as it clearly states who the box+money belongs to?
