It's unusual when you hear that a 6th grader brings $20K to school in her backpack. It would be strange to hear that any student would so such a thing, but that's what happened with a young student in Taylor, Mich., U.S.S Post reports March 13.
A 12-year-old girl who brought her cash-loaded backpack to the 6th Grade Academy Building on Monday. According to the report, the 6th grader began handing out wads of money to two different student. One got $500 and the other $200. This alerted the principal, who called police.
When authorities asked where the girl got the money, she said a friend across the street in her neighborhood gave it to her.
An investigation is underway and the money is being held until the 6th grader's parents can give some kind of explanation for why their daughter had so much cash in her possession.
"a reasonable explanation of where it came from and what it was to be used for." - See more at: http://www.thehollywoodgossip.com/2013/03/6th-grader-brings-$20k-to-school-starts-doling-it-out-to-friends/#sthash.0DVfwb6n.dpuf
Given the alarming things even young students are getting involved in, it makes sense that this type of incident would raise flags. Why would a 6th grader bring $20K to school then pass it out to other students? Was she paying them for something particular or for some future plan they all had in mind?
