When a good Samaritan returned a purse she found filled with about $3,000 inside, police officers were unsure of how to handle it.
“We have never had a purse returned with the money left in it, especially this amount of money,” said officer Sam Carter, with a smile. “We didn’t really even know what to do.”
Jeannette Williams found the purse left inside a shopping cart at Save-A-Lot earlier this week.
The purse’s owner left the grocery store suddenly to attend to a family emergency, unaware that she left her purse in the cart.
