10K In Cash Lost In Maine, Returned By Good Samaritan
Picture yourself in this situation: you're going about your day, minding your own business, when all of the sudden, you stumble upon $10,000 in cash. No one's around, no one will know if you just decide to take the cash to the bank, and deposit it into your account. So what would you do?
According to Channel 8 WMTW, that's exactly what happened to Raynard Grover of Augusta, Maine. He was driving on Old Belgrade Road, when he came upon something in the middle of the road that he originally thought was debris. But as he got closer, he realized that it was cash. A lot of cash. About ten thousand dollars in cash, to be precise.
Raynard admits that for a moment, he considered keeping it. Which, admit it, you would too, right? But when he saw there was a name attached to the money, his conscience took over. He soon called the Augusta police and reported the lost money. Turns out the money belonged to a man from Sydney, who forgot that he had left it on the bumper of his car before driving off.
It being this time of the year, the whole situation kind of reminds me of that scene from "It's A Wonderful Life." I'm really glad there's a happy ending to this story, too!
