    Passing the Buck: NJ Girl Goes on Mission to Find Owner of Dollar Bills
    NBC 4 New York

    A young girl in New Jersey hoped to return two dollar bills she found on a sidewalk to their rightful owner.

    Isabella King found the money on a sidewalk in Pequannock on Wednesday.

    Her mother tells the Daily Record that Isabella insisted on bringing the money to the police. 

    Pequannock police Capt. Christopher DePuyt says police politely declined to take it since there was no way to prove ownership of such a small amount.

    But DePuyt says that Isabella's honesty and integrity "should be an inspiration to everyone."

    Isabella says she didn't feel right keeping the money because whoever lost it might need it more than she does.

    Her mother, Alyssa King, says no one came forward to claim the money so they will donate a box of Girl Scout nuts to the military.
