December 23, 2009

SELMA, Ind. — Police say a fifth-grader handed out about $300 to others on the bus ride to his eastern Indiana school. Problem is, they say, the cash was among some $10,000 he took from his grandparents’ safe.

Delaware County Sheriff George Sheridan says the boy was riding the bus to Selma Elementary School when he handed out the money on Friday, the last school day before Christmas vacation began.

Children who received the ones, fives and twenties told teachers and the principal, and the sheriff’s department was called.

Officers found the boy carrying the rest of the cash, which was returned to his grandparents. Police weren’t certain what he intended to do with the money or how he got it from the safe.

    Robin Hood 5th grader. My guess is that he wanted to share the spirit of Christmas to all of his school mate! Too bad the bus driver got jipped though!

    Hopefully, a good-hearted kid with misplaced actions done with the spirit of Christmas intended.

    He saw his grand parents open the safe or they forgot to lock it. The good news is he had $9700 left.
