Virginia family out for ride finds nearly $1 million in road

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP) – A Virginia family out for a ride to get a change of scenery after being holed up at home due to the coronavirus found nearly $1 million in two bags lying in the road.

The Free Lance-Star of Fredericksburg reports David and Emily Schantz left their Caroline County home with their children Saturday and drove their truck over what they thought was a bag of trash, then stopped and picked it up as well as another bag nearby.

Only when they returned home did they discover the bags contained money.

They contacted the sheriff’s office, which determined where the money was headed.
