FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) – A customer at a North Carolina Krispy Kreme restaurant got something even sweeter than a dozen hot glazed: $5,000 in cash.
Multiple media outlets report that a clerk at a Krispy Kreme in Fayetteville accidentally handed over a box of doughnuts that also contained the store’s cash receipts on Friday.
Police said before taking the money to be deposited, a manager put the cash in a doughnut box as a safeguard against theft.
Fayetteville Police Sgt. Dan Grubb says the clerk didn’t know about the routine, and accidentally handed the wrong box to a customer at the drive-thru window.
Grubb says that as of Monday, no one has come forward to return the money.
Would you return the money? After all, you didn’t get your donuts…
