“I Just Knew that Turning the Money in was the Right Thing to Do. It’s the Only Thing to Do”

On 26 July 2014, Karon Krejdl, age 71, of Eagle, Nebraska, was in Bellevue, Nebraska, to shop. Unfortunately, after leaving the Aldi store at 2112 Cornhusker Road, she discovered that her wallet — which contained $1,300 — was missing. She said, “I didn’t expect to ever see that money ever again. I must have dropped it when I was boxing up my groceries.” Fortunately, a Good Samaritan and 40-year-old Bellevue resident named Jim Post found the wallet. It contained lots of money but no identification, so he turned it in to Bellevue Police Headquarters. Mr. Post said, “I wouldn’t have been able to sleep very good if I hadn’t turned it in. I was thinking someone lost a lot of money and they are probably very nervous right now.” Ms. Krejdl contacted the Bellevue Police Department and was happy to find that the police already had her wallet and money. She said, “I just really appreciate what this man did. At least I know that there’s a few honest people left in the world.” Mr. Post said, “I just knew that turning the money in was the right thing to do. It’s the only thing to do.”
