Owners of a Stevi B’s Pizza Buffet franchise are feeling extremely grateful for the surprising good deed of 85-year-old Frank Yost.

As reported by WDIV Local 4, the Trenton, Michigan man was out on his morning biking ride when he noticed an out of place bag lying on the ground behind a Woodhaven shopping plaza.

Frank explained, "I see this blue bag laying there on the street. I opened it up, saw the money, zipped it back up, put it in my basket and came home."

It turns out that it was a deposit bag from Stevi B’s restaurant that was filled with receipts and $4,700 in cash.

Frank never had an intention to keep his find and his wife Bertha told him to take it to the police.

The Woodhaven police determined that the owner accidentally dropped the bag and there was no criminal intent.

Judonne Buley, Stevi B’s manager knows they were lucky that Frank was the one who found it saying, "How everything is going out there, everybody needs money, so it’s surprising that the man brought it back."

Bertha was a little more optimistic about the general public saying, “99 percent of people would do that same thing I’m sure.

There’s always that one percent that would say, ‘Well, maybe I can take a 5 or a 10 or something, but nobody would know the difference.’”

It seems that Frank and Bertha are a perfect match because he feels the same way saying, "It’s just what you’re supposed to do. It wasn’t mine and I knew someone would be so happy when they knew it was safe."

damn, I am not sure what I would do.   if I knew there were no cameras around, and it could not be traced back to me... I would really have to think hard about what to do.

 

 

i have lost large amounts of cash before, and no one came back, even though my id with address was there!   I am certain only a small percentage of people will return it.
