    A California business owner who found $16,000 cash at a local bank gave up his lucky payday this week - when he turned it over to officials.

    Tehal Dosanjh was making a deposit at a Farmers and Merchant Bank after hours dropbox in Turlock on Monday when he found a stack of $20 bills inside.

    But he said keeping the money was never an option.

    Good Samaritan: Tehal Dosanjh found and returned a stack of bills that tallied up to $16,000

    Pay day: The money was enclosed in a bag with a deposit clip that marked the five-figure sum

    Mr Dosanjh, who owns nearby Golden Arco convenient store, said he knew he had found a large sum of money.

    But when he read the five-figure tally on the deposit slip wrapped around the stack of bills, he was in shock.

    'I couldn't believe my eyes,' he told MSNBC.


    Because the bank was closed, Dosanjh took the money home. But he said he never considered keeping it for himself, insisting his parents and the Sikh religion taught him to value honesty.

    'I knew what I had to do the next morning, which was to return it to the bank.' he said.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
