DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. (AP) — A man who runs a junk removal company came across a box while cleaning out a home for sale in the Detroit area.

That's not unusual.

The items inside certainly were.

XS Trash owner Norman Saleh (SAHL'-uh) opened the box to find $100,000 in U.S. savings bonds.

But instead of pocketing the money, Saleh called the Dearborn Heights house's owner, who gave the bonds' discoverer more than a "thank you."

The homeowner allowed Saleh to buy the property at what Saleh calls "a very, very good price." So, instead of cleaning up for a client, he's now fixing the place up for himself.

Saleh tells WXYZ-TV (http://bit.ly/1g7QkKr ) the moral of the story is that "honesty is the best policy."
