Police commend boy for returning lost money
Police were proud the 8-year-old for making the right decision and returning the cash
By PoliceOne Staff
EXETER, N.H. — A boy and his father who came across a stack of cash while walking their dog turned the money in to police, who found the money’s owner.
Guy Parenti and his son Max, 8, found a deposit envelope with $1,450 in it, and Parenti decided to make it a learning experience for his son, according to Yahoo! He told Max keeping the money was the same as stealing it, so they agreed to take it to the police.
“The police made a really big deal out of it, congratulating him, which was great,” Parenti said of Max. “He was very proud of himself.”
The envelope contained a deposit slip, which helped police with finding the rightful owner, who reportedly left a ‘thank you’ note and $100 for Max at the police station.
