Ohio couple mistakenly drops off nearly $100,000 at Goodwill

An Ohio Goodwill employee thought that she had found a bag full of play money when she opened a bag of clothes to find nearly $100,000 inside.

“The money was found in a duffle bag that was in a box full of clothes,” said Janelle Schaffer, a store manager at Goodwill on Maple Avenue. “Thank goodness she asked for a receipt when the lady dropped the donation off so we had her contact information.”

The Goodwill was finally able to get a hold of the owner, Lynette Leckrone of Lewisville, who didn’t know that the money was missing until she got the car. Her husband, Dan Leckrone, had put the money in the trunk for safekeeping.

“We are moving closer to Wheeling and we have been saving to buy a house,” Leckrone said. “We were taking the money to deposit it in another bank where we were moving to. We had our trunk full of clothes and things we wanted to get rid of but we don’t have a Goodwill near where we live so we took the things to Zanesville where we have family.”

The money, as well as a last will and testament and other legal documents that were also found inside the bag, were returned to the relieved owners.

“We picked the money up at the police department and took it straight to the bank,” Leckrone said. “We are so thankful to everyone that we got our money back.”
