Four teenagers turn in wallet with over $700
Four Great Falls teenagers have proved that while their age group might get a bad rap for being music-blaring, text-crazy, lazy individuals, they’re still capable of doing good in the world.
On June 22, 18-year-old Chance Cleveland was walking from a convenience store on Fox Farm Road, across the fields and the train tracks, on his way to work at Cold Stone Creamery in Marketplace.
He had no idea that his wallet, which contained more than $700 from a paycheck he’d just cashed, had disappeared, until a police officer, Steve O’Brien, showed up at the back door of Cold Stone and wanted to see him.
“I was wondering what was going on,” he said. “He gave me my wallet and every dime was there.”
Alison Taylor, 13, Korey Thompson, 14, Kaylee Olson, 14 and Sean Morris, 14, were the good Samaritans who came to Cleveland’s rescue.
Kaylee said they were headed to the park to go play basketball and saw the wallet lying near the train tracks. She said it would have been easy to just take the money, but they decided to call the police instead.
“We decided if we’d lost our wallet, we would want somebody to return it,” she said. “We were pretty glad he got it back.”
