Pregnant woman turns in $4,000 found in parking lot

MERRILLVILLE, Ind. – Northwestern Indiana police say a young woman who’s pregnant and in need of money found $4,000 in a parking lot but turned it over to police.

Merrillville Sgt. Bob Morgan tells the Times of Munster ( the woman turned the money in July 5, telling officers it “was the right thing to do.”

Morgan says that after The Times ran a story about the money, an older Crown Point woman told police the money had fallen out of her pocket.

The cash was returned to her after she told officers the precise amount of the cash, the denomination of the bills and produced a receipt from the check she cashed to get the money.

She told police she intends to give the woman who found the money a reward.
