Girl gets £140 reward after handing in £9,000 she found
A 10-year-old girl in Oregon has received a £140 reward for handing in a bag she found with more than $15,000 inside.
Petra Noble was shopping in the town Medford with her mother Sandi when she spotted a bank bag in a supermarket trolley.
Petra says she thought it was 'cool' when she opened the bag and found bundles of $20, $50 and $100 notes.
The bag had been forgotten by Miranda Gomez-Castro after organising her colleagues' pay and was worried she would have to pay all the cash back.
Petra and her mother handed the cash in to police. Ms Gomez-Castro gave the girl the $200 reward.
