In addition to funnel cakes and deep fried Snickers at the North Carolina State Fair, some lucky fairgoers may make it home with some extra cash in their pockets.

The Unclaimed Property Division of the N.C. Department of State Treasurer has a "NC Cash Booth" at the fair to help fairgoers in finding their share of more than $340 million in unclaimed property that may belong to them.

State Treasurer Janet Cowell 's office said during the fair's opening weekend, over $100,000 was claimed.

The Unclaimed Property Division returned more than $50 million in unclaimed cash in 2012. Unclaimed property consists of bank accounts, wages, utility deposits, stocks, bonds and other property types that have been abandoned due to a loss of communication or oversight.

North Carolinians can search for unclaimed property at www.nccash.com.
