Three Aurora kids found a wallet with $700 in a driveway and did not hesitate to do the right thing.
13-year-old Haylie Wenke, her 6-year-old brother Reagan, and their friend Ashley Dayton had been biking to a water park when they spotted the small leather object on the ground.
Wanting to return the wallet, they walked up to Carlton’s house and rang the doorbell.
“Someone else could take it and it’s not safe to leave it there in plain sight,” says Haylie.
The whole thing was caught on Jamie Carlton’s security camera. He posted the video to his Facebook account.
In a video Haylie can be heard saying, “We found your wallet outside your car and we just thought we would give it back to you so I’m going to put it over here so nobody takes any money. Thank you.”
Haylie, Ashley and Reagen knew they were doing the right thing, but are having a hard time understanding why everyone thinks it is such a big deal.
Haylie said she didn’t think what the kids did was a big deal. “If you see something that someone left or dropped, to always give it back and do the right thing”
“These kids are amazing, we would love to find them to reward them and thank them. Their parents should be so proud of them. Any help finding them would be great,” Carlton said on Facebook.
The owner of the wallet is very grateful and happy to have his wallet back. He agrees this could have turned out very bad for him fortunately, it did not.
