Dearborn Heights — A man who runs a junk removal company came across a box while cleaning out a home for sale in the Detroit area.
That’s not unusual.
The items inside certainly were.
XS Trash owner Norman Saleh opened the box to find $100,000 in U.S. savings bonds.
But instead of pocketing the money, Saleh called the Dearborn Heights house’s owner, who gave the bonds’ discoverer more than a “thank you.”
The homeowner allowed Saleh to buy the property at what Saleh calls “a very, very good price.” So, instead of cleaning up for a client, he’s now fixing the place up for himself.
Saleh tells WXYZ-TV the moral of the story is that “honesty is the best policy.”
