BOY FINDS, RETURNS STOLEN BANKNOTES
The E-Sylum (2/5/2017)
Griffin Steele, 7, thought he hit the jackpot when he saw a $20 banknote on the ground.
But he noticed it had red dye all over it and showed it to his dad Shane in Horry County, South Carolina.
Little Griffin, who had just come from a trip to Toys R Us, then went to throw it in the bin — but found it was filled with cash.
Shane said: “It was a surreal moment.
“That will probably never happen again in my lifetime, finding that much money”.
Most of the stash was covered in red dye.
It is common for cash boxes to contain small explosives filled with dye or ink to tarnish notes if they are tampered with.
But good boy Griffin told NBC: “There was a lot of it that didn’t have the red on it but I wanted to do the right thing.”
He and his dad waited with the stash until police arrived and took it.
