Teen returns $24,000 in untraceable bills

NEW YORK, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- A Long Island, N.Y., college student has returned $24,000 in untraceable $100 bills he found while at his job cleaning a movie theater.

"It's no big deal," Christopher Montgomery, 19, said through his mother, embarrassed at the attention.

But it was indeed a big deal to RoseMarie Limoncelli, 39.

She runs a business and did not make it to the bank before going with her 8-year-old daughter to see "Happy Feet" at a local movie theater.

Halfway through the film, daughter Sabrina climbed onto Limoncelli's lap. To make room for her daughter, Limoncelli slid her purse under her seat, where it tipped over.

The bank pouch must have fallen out in the dark, she told Newsday.

On the way home, stopping for ice cream, Limoncelli made the blood-chilling discovery.

"My heart stopped," she said. "My whole body was shaking."

She frantically called the theater and -- miracle of miracles -- the money was there. Montgomery had handed the pouch to his manager.

Montgomery refused a cash reward, but Limoncelli says she hopes he'll at least accept a gift certificate to a local consumer electronics store.

that reminds me of that episode of Doug where he finds the money and gives it back to the old lady and she gives him gum, only on a grander scale. I would have definately taken at least 200 dollars out of the money I mean 200 out of 2400 isnt alot and you could easily say that when the purse spilt maybe some of the money got lost. what a shmuck. "capatilism - - - free money - - - honest - - - free money - - - Oh I think I'll go with the good sumeritan law."

How would you know you were being a dick if you shut your mouth and kept the money? That could have been drug money for all you knew, and if it was you'd be a hero for keeping that money away from terrorists.

But what terrorist/drug dealer would go watch Happy Feet...? Seems sort of odd...

Anyways, I would've turned in the money as well.

While that is true, I would've given it back.

Maybe I would've taken a bit of it.

But still. The right thing to do was to return it.

Yeah, I would probably give it back too. I know I would be shitting my pants if I lost just $100, I can't imagine how much it would suck to lose 24 grand. I definitely wouldn't give it to my supervisor like this guy did if I was intending to give it back though.

I agree. All you people who are saying "He's a dumbass," think how you would feel if you lost 24 grand.

I mean, the only thing I'd "fault" him on, and I wouldn't really, because he's being a good person, was not taking a cash reward; and there's nothing wrong with that.

I mean, if she had just left her purse in there without the $24,000, and this guy took her purse, you'd all be calling him a thief! Why is it okay to take her stuff just because it has $24,000 in it?

I... wouldn't... lose 24 grand. It's as simple as that.
