A Eugene, Ore., brother and sister say sure, they briefly daydreamed of ways they could use the thousands of dollars they found lying on a road in a blue bank deposit bag.

Katie Moi is a 21-year-old college student who says she’d spent Monday afternoon dropping off job applications at restaurants. Her 26-year-old brother Ryan Moi is working to get a business up and running.

Still, they told the Register-Guard it was obvious they couldn’t keep the thick stack of $100 bills, which they say totaled $13,000.

The shaken siblings drove to their father’s house. Erik Moi saw from paperwork in the bag that the money belonged to a company called Reliable Credit. He returned the money for Katie and Ryan.

Reliable Credit President Lee Holzman confirms the family’s account but disagrees about the amount of money in the bag. Still, he says he’s very grateful for its return.

Holzman says, “The cool part of the story is the kids and what they did.”
