Nearly $10,000 in cash left in shopping cart: Good Samaritans return to owner

SENNETT, N.Y. (AP) — A restaurant owner left nearly $10,000 in cash in a shopping cart at an upstate New York store. A couple who found the money decided to return it.

Managers at the Tractor Supply Co. store in Sennett in the Finger Lakes region of New York said the couple found around $9,800 in an envelope Monday morning, along with a checkbook.

A local publication wrote that the couple turned the envelope over to the store’s staff, did their shopping and left without giving their names.

The restaurant owner called the store Monday saying she had put a week’s worth of her restaurant’s receipts in the envelope and mistakenly left it in a cart while shopping Sunday evening.

The woman, who didn’t want her name released, says she’d like to find the couple to reward them.
