“It’s Nice to Have a Feel-Good Story. Especially When It’s a Kid Doing the Right Thing”

On Halloween 2013 in Sandwich, Massachusetts, 13-year-old Jack Sheehan found a bag containing nearly $1,300 in cash while he was walking his dog. He did the right thing and turned it in to police, who located the owners and returned the money to them. Jack said, “I felt like it was the right thing to do. I’m happy they got the money they lost. A lot of people I know would have been on the fence of what to do.” The bag contained bank deposit slips on which the letters “MCS” appeared. The money had come from Mashpee Country Store, a convenience store in nearby Mashpee, Massachusetts. Mohammad Ahmad had intended to deposit the money in a bank, but he had placed the bag on the roof of his car, left it there, and as he drove to the bank, it fell off. His brother, Mohammad Rafiq, said, “It fell on the way somewhere. We were looking for it here and there.” Rafiq added, “The kid was really good. It is not usual that this kind of thing happens.” They rewarded Jack with $100 and candy. Christa Cabral, the Sandwich school resource officer, said,  “It’s nice to have a feel-good story. Especially when it’s a kid doing the right thing.”
