She found $10K in cash — and turned it in

Rural Carrier Carolyn Norton was driving to work at the McKinney, TX, Post Office one morning last September when she saw $20 bills flying around.

Norton pulled over and safely collected as much of the money as possible, then called 911.

Police arrived and helped gather the rest of the money, which totaled nearly $10,000.

An investigation determined the cash belonged to a local homeless Vietnam War veteran who doesn’t trust keeping his money in a bank. It was returned to the man.

“I would not keep one dime because I would want someone to do that for me,” Norton told the local Fox TV station.
