Georgia woman using KFC drive-thru finds $543 in cash under sandwich, decides what to do with it


A Georgia woman is being commended by authorities after returning the more than $543 in cash she found under her sandwich. 

In a Facebook post, the City of Jackson Police Department thanked Mrs. Joann Oliver for her “honesty and goodness.” 

“On Wednesday, September 14, 2022, Jackson Police were called to Mrs. Oliver’s workplace. Mrs. Oliver had [gone] to a local restaurant drive-through on her lunch break and returned to work to enjoy her lunch. When she opened her lunch and removed her sandwich, she was surprised to find $543.10 in cash under her sandwich,” the department said. 

“After investigating the find, it was determined that the restaurant’s daily deposit had accidentally been placed in her sandwich bag. Not only did Mrs. Oliver do the right thing, but she saved the manager’s job,” it continued. “Mrs. Oliver, thank you for reminding us that we have amazing citizens in Jackson, and it’s people like you that make us great!”
