Caught on camera: Colorado kids return wallet with $700 inside

COLORADO -- Usually, surveillance video from a doorbell camera is released for all the wrong reasons. But not this time.

A group of children in Colorado are becoming a social media sensation for what they were caught doing.

Thirteen-year-old Haylie Wenke and her 6-year-old brother, Reagan, along with a friend, found a wallet in a driveway while they were riding their bikes.

It had $700 inside.

No one was around, but the kids did the right thing anyway and returned the wallet.

"We found your wallet outside of your car and we just thought we would give it back to you," Haylie says in the video. "I'm going to put it over here so no one takes the money."

The homeowner posted the video so he could track down the children. He said he was able to get in touch with Haylie's mother to thank them.
