Earlier this week the Ferrin family purchased their first home in Salt Lake City and during Josh Ferrin’s first walk through the new home something miraculous happened. According to Josh something out of place caught his eye in the garage and after a short investigation something very valuable was found.
What Josh discovered was a WWII ammo tin which contained a large sum of money. Of course being that he had just purchased the home Josh continued to investigate what he was finding and in the process he found a few other bags containing even more money.
Eventually Josh managed to recover all of the cash which came to a total of $45,000. Josh said he immediately reacted and called members of his family for advice on what to do; he decided that locking the money safely in his car was probably the best thing to do for the time being.
After a few days of counting the money and finding out who it belonged to Josh Ferrin called the son of the man who previously owned the home. Josh said that at first he was not sure what to do with the money but after a few days thinking about it he realized that returning the money to the owner was the only thing he could do. Shortly thereafter Josh met with the previous owner’s son and transferred the $45,000 in cash to him. The story touched many hearts and according to Ferrin it will be used as a lesson to teach his young children the concept of honesty.
