INDUSTRY >> An honest teenager found about $5,000 in an envelope outside an Industry bank branch late Friday and turned it in to the sheriff’s department, officials said.
The 17-year-old boy was walking through the parking lot of East West Bank at the Puente Hills Mall, 1680 S. Azusa Ave., when he spotted a bag lying on the ground, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Arthur Scott said.
The teen found an envelope inside the bag which contained about $5,000, officials said. The bank was closed for the day, so the boy turned the money over to sheriff’s officials.
Capt. Tim Murakami, who heads the sheriff’s Industry Station, commended the teen’s character.
“We have great kids growing up in the area,” the captain said via Twitter.
The rightful owner of the found money can reach the sheriff’s Industry Station at 626-330-3322.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A woman who entered a California police station is believed to be 1991 abduction victim Jaycee Lee Dugard, who was 11 when kidnapped.
