Three people who ordered food at a Taco Bell drive-through in western Michigan got something more valuable: $3,600 in cash.
A Taco Bell employee mistakenly passed the cash to the trio instead of their food Saturday. The money was returned a short time later.
Kennidi Rue told WZZM-TV and MLive.com that she and two friends thought about keeping the money but decided they would feel guilty if they didn't return it. Grand Rapids police Capt. Jeff Hertel confirmed the incident, saying an officer was called to assist.
"I thought it was joke," said Rue, 18, of Holland, Mich. "I thought we were on camera. ... The store manager literally just burst out in tears. She was so happy we brought it back."
The money was in a store bag for deposit at a bank. A message seeking comment was left with Taco Bell.
Rue, boyfriend Grant Kruse, 20, and another friend, Luke Postma, 25, got their meal when they returned the money. Kruse and Postma are National Guard members who were in Grand Rapids for training.
