A Massachusetts junk hauler this weekend valued honesty over profit when he decided to return thousands of dollars worth of bonds to a homeowner who had hired him to take away what she thought was junk.
Inside an old trunk, he discovered an envelope containing 21 class E United States savings bonds from 1972 worth $114,000 today.
Leo Guarente’s good deed was caught on camera, not just by news crews. He is trying to get a show on A&E and happened to be filming the pilot when he found the bonds.
