Lindsay Police Share Rewarding Story!A Lindsay girl who found $200.00 in Beaverton last year and turned it over to police will be recognized a second time for her honesty, after an anonymous donor dropped money off to Kawartha Lakes Police for her.
As reported in MyKawartha on December 15th, 2015, Mai Lie Wagg of Lindsay was presented with $200.00 during the Monday December 14th, 2015 meeting of the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service Board. She had found the money while living in Beaverton, in 2014 and turned the money in to Durham Regional Police, who sought her out after they could not locate the owner. When she turned the money in to police she told them she didn’t keep the money because “it would be dishonest, and it wasn’t the right thing to do.”
Her good deed has not gone unnoticed! It has caught the attention of an anonymous person who was visiting our community and happened to read the local newspaper. They indicated that the young girl’s honesty would not have occurred in their home community, and wanted to reward her further. The anonymous person dropped off an additional $200 for Mai Lie, as a reminder to all young people to make the honest and right decision.
