Teen Returns Purse With $10,000 Inside

California teen, Rhami Zeini is being praised as a good Samaritan after finding a purse with $10,000 inside and returning it. 

It has been reported that while Zeini was driving home from school, he noticed a black bag in the middle of the road. After getting out of his car to retrieve the bag, he feverishly searched for the owners identification and noticed that the bag was filled with cold hard cash. After no such luck of finding out who the bag belonged to, he and his parents turned the bag in to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's office.


Instead of keeping the money for himself, the 16-year-old said:

"To me, I figured this is the right thing to do. If the roles were reversed and I had lost something with a significant sum of money inside, I know I would want it back for sure.”

Luckily a watch officer was able to track down the owner, who was grateful enough to give Rhami $100 for his good deed. As for how the purse ended up on the ground, the woman believes she left her purse on the roof of her car and drove away.

She definitely lucked up this go around!
