Teens Rewarded for Doing "What's Right" in Kennewick

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Kennewick police are praising the efforts of four teens who they say did what's right.

The four were walking through the Columbia Center Mall parking lot when they found a bundle of cash with almost $2,000 inside. Police say the teens returned the money to the mall's guest services desk.

Friday, the Kennewick Police Department surprised Bradley Young, Brittanty Nall, and Hayden Wing with a chief's medallion and visa gift cards for their efforts.

Hayden Wing says, "Brittany, she kind of told us we should turn it security guard so we went and turned it into them."

Brittany Nall says, "We though it would be the right thing to do and we had been taught to give the money back.

Bradley Young says, "It was just so much money that I was acting on instinct and my instinct said to give the money back."  

The fourth teen, Andrew Horton, wasn't able to attend the ceremony. Kennewick police found the money's rightful owner and returned it to her.
