Council will decide Monday whether teen keeps found money


The St. Paul Park City Council will decide Monday whether to reward a 15-year-old for his honesty.

The city's police chief is recommending that the council give Oltman Junior High ninth-grader Matthew Lindemann the $160 he found while walking to school in late-October.

"It's the right thing to do," said St. Paul Park Police Chief Mike Monahan. "It demonstrates that if a young person does the right thing, it can be rewarded and should be rewarded."
