Here’s what Santa Barbara County Sheriff wrote on Facebook:
"In a world where we are bombarded with bad news, we are excited to share a positive story with you. On Wednesday, 16-year-old Rhami Zeini was driving home from school when he saw a purse in the roadway near Turnpike and Cathedral Oaks. When the Laguna Blanca High School junior looked inside the purse he saw a large amount of cash. He tried to find contact information with a phone number for the owner but could not. He got a hold of his parents and they drove to the Sheriff's Office and returned the purse with $10,000 dollars inside. Police were then able to track down the owner and return the lost purse to her. They said she was very grateful to get it back and thinks she lost it by leaving it on the roof of her car then drove off.”
