Student brings $20K to school: Police investigates

Student brings $20k to school? Police are investigating a bizarre case in which a sixth grade student brought a backpack full of money to class with her. And the cash totaled $20,000. Police still don’t know what to make of the cash, although the girl who brought the money to school claims she found it in her neighborhood. The situation turned into a problem when the student not only brought the $20k to school, but started passing the money around class. In fact, the young student is said to have handed out hundreds of dollars to her fellow students. At the moment, its not yet known if the young girl did this to be generous to her classmates, or if it was an effort to brag about the money she had just found. Police have of course seized the money from the student. They are now hoping that someone can come forward to not only claim the money, but explain how they acquired it in the first place.
