College Kids Caught Being Honest, Rewarded

Four New Jersey college football players are being rewarded for their honesty. The members of the William Paterson University football team each received $50 gift cards after surveillance cameras captured them paying for some batteries and sunglasses even though no employees were around at a Wayne, NJ, store. Buddy's Small Lots was actually closed Sunday night, but the lock malfunctioned and the lights were on, making it appear as though it were open. Cameras showed the men calling out for a clerk, and two of them can be seen depositing cash on the counter, one waving bills in the direction of a camera. (More timeless news stories.)
