Off-Duty Officer Returns $120,000 To Its Rightful Owner Without A Second Thought.

off-duty officer returns money to owner

In San Francisco, California, an off-duty highway patrol officer showed some amazing integrity even though no one was around. She was driving down the highway when she identified two bank deposit bags. After pulling over, she discovered the bags were filled with $120,000.


That’s a huge sum that could’ve easily been found by someone who would have kept it, but the officer worked with police to find the owner without a second thought. The officer chose to remain anonymous, but praise from her coworkers and the chief sergeant caught local media attention. Turns out that the money was the original owner’s life savings. Her friends and family were shocked that she turned the money in immediately, but she thought she could teach them a lesson in honesty instead.
