Two Teens Find $20K While Building a Fort, Then Turn It In!

US

The money was stuffed in plastic bags next to a pair of gloves in the backpack.

What would you do if you found a backpack filled with more than $20,000 in cash? Two Utah teens turned it in. The Salt Lake Tribune reprots on the discovery:

"While working on the fort in a wooded area of the Avenues, one of the boys found a golf ball and let it roll down the hillside, according to a police report. When the boy went to find the ball, he spotted a backpack 'shoved under some bushes,' according to the report.

Seeing a significant amount of cash inside, the boys brought the backpack home and showed to a parent.

Fearing the cash may have been part of a crime, a parent of one of the teens called police. McGowan said the parent and boys did the right thing."

The money was stuffed in plastic bags next to a pair of gloves in the backpack. Police were happy to see the teens "do the right thing" and the origin of the backpack is still unknown at this time.

A Salt Lake City police spokesman said of the discovery "It was a needle in a haystack."

My only question is what were two teens doing building a fort?
