A family has proved that honest people still exist after they stumbled upon almost $1 million (N390,000,000) along the road on their way home.
David and Emily Schantz were driving near their Caroline County address on Saturday, May 16 when they ran-over two bags.
The family picked-up two bags they thought contained waste on a weekend drive.
According to The Independent, the woman identified as Schantz decided to collect the bags after seeing other cars swerve over them.
The couple was surprised later after discovering the bags did not contain waste but money worth $1million (N39,000,000)
Speaking to WTVR, Schantz said that inside the bags there were plastic baggies that were written "cash vault".
She then contacted Caroline County police, who were dispatched to the address to investigate.
According to the sheriff identified as Scott Moser, it was exceptional to have someone so honest give back a million dollars.
Police continue to investigate how the money bags were left on the road in Goochland County, but suspect the bags belonged to the US Postal Service and were en route to a bank.
