CHICAGO -- Despite everything, Robert Adams considers himself to be an honest man.
Adams, 54, a hospital engineer from Arlington Heights, Ill., made the news last month for turning in a bag of money he said he found lying on the ground. He was praised as a paragon of integrity.
But this week, his story unraveled. After being confronted by FBI agents and Rolling Meadows, Ill., detectives, Adams admitted that he had found the cash inside a Walgreens store -- and that he had harbored thoughts of keeping it for himself.
