Innisfil Boy Rewarded For Honesty

(Innisfil, ON) An Innisfil boy who found a $100 bill in his schoolyard has been rewarded for doing the right thing.

Last fall, 5-year-old Oliver found the cash in his schoolyard and turned it in to the school office. The school contacted South Simcoe Police Service who held onto the money hoping the owner would come forward. But no one ever claimed the cash. If found property is not claimed by the lawful owner within 90 days, the finder can make application to the Police Services Board to claim the property. In this case, the property was money and the application was made by the South Simcoe Police Service Property Unit. The Police Services Board approved the request to reward Oliver for his good deed.

Constable Jesse McGee recently surprised the boy with the cash and a heartfelt congratulations for his honesty.

Way to go Oliver! We commend you for your honesty and integrity. You set a great example for others to follow.
