6th grader's backpack full of 'Benjamins'

  • Police: Girl brought $20,000 in cash to school
  • Handed out hundreds to classmates

A 12-year-old showed up to school with $20,000 cash stashed in her backpack and then started handing out $100 dollar bills to her classmates! 

Police in Taylor, Michigan, outside Detroit say she could have put herself in danger. 

The girl apparently got the money from her neighbors' child, but it's not clear how or why. 

The neighbors have claimed the cash, and the student is back in school.
