Leo Guarente must feel like he’s done his good deed of the day. The junk dealer was cleaning out the home of a deceased woman and came across an envelope containing twenty one US saving bonds from 1972.
Instead of skimming his eyes across the room to assess who saw him and then stuffing it in his pocket when the coast was clear, he actually returned them to the woman’s family.
The owner of Junk Depot in Saugas surprised the woman’s daughter Maria Veloso, by presenting her with the $114,000 in war bonds. While I think I would have been jumping around a little more than she does, her reaction still must have felt pretty awesome to Gaurente.
