A Texas teenager recently earned the praise of his community after he found and returned a wallet lost containing $1,500 inside.

According to KMBT-TV, earlier this month, Kameron Grigsby, a 17-year-old football player who works at an HEB grocery store, found a wallet with $1,500 in cash inside a shopping cart.

Grigsby told KMBT that as a parking lot attendant, he frequently finds personal items like purses and cellphones in carts. When he found the wallet, he said, he promptly gave it to his manager, like he does with all the items he finds.

“You can always do the right thing, like our coach always says, the right way,” Grigsby told KMBT. “You don’t have to always go astray … stay on the right path and stay focused.”

Grigsby said that when he discovered the wallet containing the large sum, his first thought was “this could be somebody’s bill money, car note, house note, mortgage.”

Grigsby described some of the other items he’s returned as well.

“The phone was at the front of the cart, you know like they were waiting to check out and forgot to grab it,” he said. “The wallet, just as well, same spot. The purse was in a bigger basket at the bottom, one of the kids must’ve had it or something.”

He said once when a woman lost her phone, “she came right back so I was able to give it to her, and she said thank you.”

Grigsby said it’s important to be honest because “God’s going to give it to me more, three times more, so why not give it back?”
