Honest shopper turns in purse with $700 inside

BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

Sally Rosalles can't wait to spoil her 5-month-old grandson for his first Christmas, and Monday night she went to Pierre Bossier Mall to start her shopping.

"I had just come from the bank because I had all my Christmas money in it," said Rosalles.

She had more than $700 cash in her purse. In all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season Rosalles dropped at Sears, but didn't realize it until later.

It turns out someone was looking out for her. She was relieved when a store clerk told her another woman had turned her purse in with everything, including the money, still inside.

Rosalles is on Social Security, and that money was everything she plans to spend on gifts for her family.

"It would have been terrible. You know, it would have been so skimpy for my babies. I've got a brand new grand baby, and I've got an 11 year old grandson," she said.

Rosalles would love for the person who turned it in to come forward so she can thank them, and if they can describe her purse for her she would like to give them a small reward.

    When the town of Gilmer is mentioned in relation to sports, the Buckeyes powerhouse football program immediately comes to mind. And that's fair considering they have won three state titles and racked up 13 double digit win seasons since 2000. But a small 1A school about nine miles away deserves some attention these days as well.
