Three hungry customers pulled into the Kentwood, Michigan Taco Bell drive-thru expecting meals, so they were surprised when they found thousands of dollars in cash in their bag  :huh:  instead of food.

 

As reported by WZZM 13 On Your Side, Kennidi Rue, Luke Postma and Grant Kruse didn’t even realize the fast food restaurant’s mistake until they had driven miles away. Kennidi said, “I opened my bag to get my food and it ended up being three bags of money, a lot of money, and then another wad of like a ton of 20s.

 

We added it up and it was like…” “It was like $3600,” the men added.

 

The trio had a decision to make: return the money or keep the cash.

 

The friends admitted that there was a brief moment where they were tempted.

 

“Of course, initially you want to keep it,” Kennidi conceded. “But then you’re like, ‘No someone’s going to lose their job. Let’s bring this back,’” said Luke. Grant added, “It obviously wasn’t ours. It’s not like we were losing anything by giving it back.

 

So we just thought we’d bring it back and I don’t know, just do it the right way I guess.” Luke explained what happened when they returned the money.

 

“We went in and the lady, we met her, and she had just a stone cold look on her face.

 

And we brought it in and she just started like, on the spot, just like losing it. She was crying. She was I guess, pretty happy.”

 

The three customers were also happy.

 

They said the best part of their good deed, was that they finally got their food from Taco Bell.

Never been, but from my understanding that's a pretty lousy second-place prize...

Yeah not too many people would have done that, glad it had a happy ending.  But in order to take advantage of these situations going forward, everyone should reallly order a side of cash with their meals just to ensure plausible denability...

Phew, for a moment there I thought they actually found real meat or vegetables in their tacos.

My question is, how did $3600 get in their bags in the first place?

There was another story about Taco Bell, where someone found drugs in their bag.  The employee was dealing drugs out through the drive thru window.   A regular person got it instead of the intended person.    I wonder if this was like that.

Was a manager, who was planning a run to the bank, for a deposit.

 

They think they are being clever, disguising the money.

 

A bad practice to put the money in a food bag.

That's it. Taco Bell for lunch it is! :laugh:

 

Yeah, I'd be willing to bet anything it was their deposit. I agree though, you'd have to be pretty dumb to put your deposit in the food bag.

Not really, it's best to put it in something no one's going to question instead of walking out in something else that's noticeable.    Anyone looking to rob your place isn't going to check all the people coming in and out with regular food bag or shopping bag if it's a market.   Some employee walking out with a nice looking suitcase though?  Prime target.
