TURLOCK, Calif.  — When a Turlock business owner went to deposit cash at a Farmers and Merchant Bank's drop box, he found a stack of money inside.

Tehal Dosanjh looked at the deposit slip wrapped around the money. It read: $16,000.

"I was shocked, I couldn't believe my eyes,” Dosanjh said. The bank was closed, so he took the money home and put it in a safe place. Having all that cash overnight was never a temptation, Dosanjh said. “I knew what I had to do the next morning, which was to return it to the bank.” Dosanjh said his parents and the Sikh religion taught him honesty and hard work.

“I have been blessed with so much, I really wanted to give it back to (a person) that really earned it," he said. "I you haven't earned it, it doesn't belong to you.

A spokesperson for the bank said the money was sitting there because the customer before Dosanjh did not deposit the large sum of money correctly.

The bank was thankful Dosanjh returned the money so they could get it back to the rightful owner. (more)
