Police praise kids for turning in large amount of money

ST. GEORGE The Hurricane Police Department is praising the honesty of a group of children who turned in a “substantial amount of money” they found.

“The Hurricane Police Department would like to recognize Riley, Alexis and Scottland for their integrity and desire to do what is right,” the Police Department posted on Facebook Tuesday.

The three came across a piece of lost property, possibly a wallet or purse, while on their way to a bus stop.

“There was a substantial amount of money but (it) had no identification,” the Police Department wrote, adding that the children turned the lost property into police on their own without prompting from adults.

“We thank them for their honesty and see them as an example of good in the community.”

Anyone who think they have lost property in Hurricane can contact police. The department periodically posts lists of found property online in an effort to return them it their owners.

People can contact the Police Department’s evidence technician Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 435-635-9663 ext. 125 with a description of what was lost to see if the police have it.
