Two Salt Lake City teenage boys building a fort on a lazy summer afternoon a little more than a week ago found a hidden treasure that could have built them a much nicer fort but they turned it in.
"It was a needle in a haystack," said Salt Lake City police spokesman Dennis McGowan. The teens stumbled onto a backpack filled with a pair of gloves, Ziplock bags and more than $20,000 in cash.
"They found it and realized it was valuable and significant," McGowan said, adding that the boys took it to a parent who called police to report it. "It all worked out perfectly from a police perspective."
