Indiana woman turns in 18 $100 bills found on floor


LAPORTE, Ind. A woman who found 18 $100 bills on the floor of a northern Indiana grocery store turned it in and the cash was later returned to the man who lost it.

Margaret Brown was at the Save-A-Lot store in LaPorte on Friday when she spotted the money. She handed it over to store manager Brandon Deletto, who then called police.

Alvie Ellenwine realized after running errands that he had lost the money he received when he cashed a check earlier in the day. The 68-year-old man called the grocery store and learned the money had been turned over to police.

The LaPorte Police Department plans to recognize Brown and Deletto for their good deeds.
