Doing The Right Thing

A 54-year-old Chicago-area man who found and returned more than $17,000 in cash… says he credits his deceased parents for teaching him right from wrong. Robert Adams of Arlington Heights says he was waiting to use an ATM in Rolling Meadows, when he noticed a clear plastic bag containing mostly $20 and $100 bills. Adams tried to return the bag with “Chase” written on it to a nearby bank branch but employees said it didn’t belong to them. Police determined it was under the care of Loomis, an armored truck company. Loomis says they are investigating, but have not said whether Adams will get a reward. Adams told the Daily Herald “I don’t care if you put another zero on there, I wasn’t raised to take money that isn’t mine.”
