“You Guys, There’s No Food in Here. It’s Just Money”

 In the summer of 2013, Kennidi Rue (age 18), Luke Postma (age 25), and Grant Kruse (age 20) ordered take-out from a Taco Bell in Kentwood, Michigan. They drove approximately a mile away before Ms. Rue opened the bag — she did not find the chicken burritos and two soft-shell tacos with no cheese that they had ordered. She said, “I opened my bag to get my food and it ended up being three bags of money, a lot of money, and then another wad of like a ton of 20s.” She told the other two, “You guys, there’s no food in here. It’s just money.” The money added up to $3,600 in cash. Ms. Rue said, “We just sat there and said, ‘What are we supposed to do?’ At first, we were like, ‘Think about what we can do with this money,’ but we weren’t raised like that.” Mr. Postma said about their second thoughts, “But then you’re like, ‘No, someone’s going to lose their job. Let’s bring this back.’” Mr. Kruse added, “It obviously wasn’t ours. It’s not like we were losing anything by giving it back. So we just thought we’d bring it back and I don’t know, just do it the right way, I guess.” They called the police department, and a police officer escorted them back to the restaurant, where they gave the money to a manager. Mr. Rue said, “The manager started bawling and was really shaken up and said, ‘Thank you so much.’ Right there, we thought, ‘Wow, we’re so glad we did the right thing. It was obviously a big deal for her.” The manager immediately took the money to the bank after thanking the trio, who then received the food they had ordered. Ms. Rue said, “I don’t think that will ever happen to us ever again. [It was] the craziest thing ever, for sure.” She added, “I thought it was a candid camera joke.”
