Boy Earns Citizen Award For Returning Found Money

A six-year-old boy from Massachusetts is learning that it pays to be honest after turning in some money he found on the ground. Jasper Dopman was walking with his dad, Erik, when he saw a cloth bag outside near a school. When they looked inside, it was full of cash and deposit slips.

So the father and son did the right thing and turned the money into the Arlington Police Department. And they figured out the $2,000 belonged to a Mexican family-owned restaurant and that an employee had lost the bag earlier.

Jasper and his dad each received an Outstanding Citizen Award from the police and the Mexican restaurant threw in some gifts as well, to reward them for being honest. And they probably saved that employee who lost the cash bag her job!
