Man Discovers $45,000 in Newly Purchased Home

THECOUNT.COM "ALWAYS OPEN! Since 2005!" - May 20, 2011

Josh Ferrin picked up the keys to his family’s new home in the Salt Lake City suburb of Bountiful earlier this week and upon a further inspection of the garage, found $45,000 in cash, stashed in eight World War II ammunition cases.

Ferrin quickly took the boxes to his parents’ home to count along with his wife and children. And although he thought about how far that amount of money could go to help his own family he also thought about the home’s previous owner, Arnold Bangerter, who had passed away in November, leaving the house to his kids.

Ferrin called one of Bangerter’s sons with the news after being quoted as saying, “But the money wasn’t ours to keep… that is a lesson I hope to teach my children.”

Kim Bangerter knew his father stashed money, but had no idea it was of this amount. He called the money’s return, “a story that will outlast our generation and probably yours’ as well.”
