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.
