A family has proved that honest people still exist after they stumbled upon almost KSh 106,000 along the road on their way home.
David and Emily Schantz were driving near their Caroline County address on Saturday, May 16 when their ran-over two bags.
The family picked-up two bags they thought contained waste on a weekend drive.
According to The Independent, the woman identified as Schantz decided to collect the hag after seeing other cars swerve over the bags.
The couple was surprised later after discovering the bags did not contain waste but money worth KSh 106,000,000 ($1million).
Speaking to WTVR, Schantz said that inside the bags there were plastic baggies which were written "cash vault".
She then contacted Caroline County police, who were dispatched to the address to investigate.
According to the sheriff identified as Scott Moser, it was exceptional to have someone so honest give back a million dollars.
Police continue to investigate how the money bags were left on the road in Goochland County, but suspect the bags belonged to the US Postal Service and were en route to a bank.
The sheriff said he hoped the owners of the cash would provide the Schantz family with some reward for their actions.
