Teen finds $82,000 in pocket book - and returns it

VESTBY, Norway -

How's this for a test of honesty?

A  woman's purse was found on an empty train seat in Norway Thursday.

Bendik Hallstensen, 16, and his girlfriend noticed no one seemed to be with the purse so they decided to look inside.

They were shocked by what they found- almost $82,000 worth of cash.

They called the police, who sent a patrol car as soon as Hallstensen called.

Inside the purse was also a passport, so police were able to find the happy owner.

According to Norway's TV2, the law requires a 10 percent finder's fee.
