KID FINDS $100K CASH IN DUMPSTER PLAYING POKEMON GO, PARENTS TURN MONEY IN

New Orleans – A 13 year old kid discovers $100,000 in cash in a dumpster behind his apartment building while playing Pokemon Go on his tablet.

Game players use their phones and other mobile devices to locate Pokemon characters that pop up on a map based on their geo-location. Certain Pokemon are found in grassy areas while others are found near bodies of water. The game requires users to constantly be on the move to locate Pokemon and update their Pokedex, a database that store information about a particular Pokemon.

According to reports, Marcus Giles, a 13 year old kid from New Orleans, was playing with the app on his tablet when he came across an astonishing discovery. The young teen found $100,000 in cash wrapped in a trash bag inside of a dumpster while trying to catch Pikachu. Giles immediately told his parents about the finding and they quickly ran outside to check out his claims.

“My son enjoys playing Pokemon Go, said Garrett Giles, Marcus’s father. Day in and day out he is on his tablet playing the game. He found a few Pokemon in strange places inside the apartment building but I would have never thought he would find a large amount of money on the game.”

Garrett and Loretta Giles were victims of Hurricane Katrina and had just started to get their lives back on track. The couple was originally from the 9th Ward but had been displaced for several years before moving back to New Orleans.

Mr. Giles was hesitant to tell the police about their findings because of their financial hardships however Mrs. Giles was eager to return the money to authorities because she believed it was the right thing to do.

“I know we are going through some rough times but I’m pretty sure someone else is too after losing so much money, said Mrs. Giles. I hope that the rightful owners of this money will claim it and make their lives better.”

After the family returned the money to authorities, the owner of the lost cash claimed it from authorities. The original owner of the money asked to remain anonymous however they rewarded the family with $1,000 for their honesty.
