How He Finds $5,000 Full Details
Michael Melvin, the youngster’s parent, was informed of the discovery. Initially, the father was suspicious, believing that the box contained paperwork.
When they later opened it up, however, the father was shocked by what he saw. Michael told the news station, “I start calling my wife, ‘Hey, babe, you got to check this out!’”
“And that’s when we dump it on the bed and money falls over the bed.”
The money was traced back to the car’s previous owners by the family.
The family promised the Melvins they would not return the money unless Landon could keep $1,000 as a reward for his discovery. Landon said, “I’m thinking of all the things I can buy,”
