It's a happy holiday ending in the "Lost and Found Department".
The Beacon Journal reports that a cloth bag with $12,000 was lost Wednesday in Akron, but was found a day later by a very honest Akron couple.
Police say the woman and her husband found the tan cloth bag lying in the middle of the road at an Ellet intersection and went to police, who went through paperwork inside to find the rightful owners - the Springfield Township couple who lost the loot.
They had it because they were going to buy a house out of state.
The couple isn't giving out their names, and aren't talking about any possible reward. The woman says - quote - "God kept his hand on that money."
