On January 21, 2023 at approximately 1745 hours, police were dispatched to the BP Gas Station near Pontiac Lake Rd in White Lake Township. Police were meeting with citizen, Dianne Gordon who reported she found a bag of money and wanted to turn it in to the police. Officers arrived at the BP and met with her. Dianne lives in the White Lake Mobile Home Community and was walking home from work at VC’s Fresh Marketplace in Waterford, 2.5 miles away. Ms. Gordon advised that she was walking into the BP to warm up from the cold and snow, when she found a Ziplock bag on the ground. She picked up the bag and was shocked to find it filled with cash. Gordon went inside, notified the cashier, and immediately called the White Lake Police. She turned the bag over to police and never opened it (even though she could clearly see a large amount of cash inside). Dianne does not have a vehicle, and walks back and forth to VC’s daily, regardless of the Michigan elements, where she works in the deli. She self admittedly “needed the money” and “it would be life-changing” for her, but that she didn’t think twice about not turning it in. There ultimately was found to be $14,780 along with wedding cards in the bag which were the gifts of a newly married couple that day. Dianne is a perfect example of integrity and selflessness even in her own time of need. We will be working with Szott Automotive to get Dianne a vehicle with the funds raised.
