If you are not a relative of the individual listed on the stock certificates, you can get in big trouble trying to cash them.  Turn them over to the police,  It's possible this stranger stole them.

You would be in a heap of trouble if you tried to do this, prison for a long time for sure. As noted, you need to turn these into some form of authority. I don't think the police would be the proper authority, but you might contact your local courthouse and ask them what they advise.
