Pocket Surprise

Have you ever been surprised when putting on your jacket or pants, that perhaps you haven't worn in a while, by finding money in the pocket? Maybe a twenty or maybe a couple of ones. It happens to me once in a while and it's always a welcome event. It's a good way to start your day and I wish it would happen more often. A Florida boy seems to have gotten a similar surprise, today.

Boy, 7, Finds Crack Cocaine in Pocket

A first-grader searching his jacket pocket for money found a bag of crack cocaine worth $8,900, authorities said Wednesday.

The 7-year-old boy found the bag Tuesday at Forest Hills Elementary School. It contained 89 grams of crack, said Tampa police spokeswoman Lisa Parashis.

The boy had been reaching in his jacket when he felt the bag, "got scared and told his teacher," Parashis said.

Authorities were interviewing the boy and his relatives.

Thankfully I've never had to go through an interview prosscess when I find my 'surprise'!
