Honest man turns in found cash
What would you have done?
James A. Fox, from Grand Coulee, turned in to put some gas into his car last Tuesday at Coulee Gas and found a wad of cash totaling $1,000.
Fox promptly went to the Grand Coulee Police Department across the street and gave the money to officer Tom Johnson, who promptly put it into found property.
Later, police sgt. Gary Moore went to Coulee Gas to review the firm’s security tape and saw that Everett Leishman (Mr. E) had dropped the money while gassing up his vehicle.
Leishman went to the police station to describe his loss, which was in 100s, 50s, and 20s, and was reunited with his money.
He explained that he had just concluded the sale of a vehicle, which was the reason he had been carrying that much cash.
Officers explained to Leishman that the money had been found by Fox and promptly turned into police.
