Oliver called police, who determined that a worker accidentally placed the restaurant’s daily deposit into the sandwich bag.
Oliver spoke with Channel 2′s Tom Jones on Friday about finding the money and her decision to return it.
“Character and integrity is doing the right thing when no one is looking!!!” the department wrote on Facebook. “Not only did Mrs. Oliver do the right thing but she saved the manager’s job.”
