Woman Turns In $36,000 She Found On Golf Course: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Florida woman being praised by police for turning in $36,000 she found on a golf course said her Christian faith led her to do what`s right."


Rachel Castillo, who works serving drinks to golfers at the Miami Beach Golf Course, said a customer alerted her to a bag left behind on a bench at the course Jan. 20 and she discovered the bad was filled with `stack after stack` of cash.

Castillo said she contacted police to turn over the bag, which also contained a 76-year-old man`s identification."


If the average person found a bag containing $36,000 on a golf course, he would exclaim "Thank You Jesus", rationalizing that only rich old farts play golf, and he needed the money more than the old coot who lost it.
