Christmas-Spirited Man Returns Lost Money Pile

AUGUSTA, Maine - A Maine man driving down the road saw what he thought was a pile of debris, and it turned out to be $10,000 - which he promptly helped return. Augusta resident Raynard Grover pulled over in his hometown on Monday and found the bag of thousands of dollars in the road. He called Augusta police to report the find, which turned out to belong to the owner of a local business. WABI-TV reports Power Equipment Plus owner Randy Violette had been bringing the cash to the bank. He had set a pile of cash that was slated for deposit from the previous day on the bumper of his car, and forgot it was there when he drove off.
