Krispy Kreme customer walks away with 5 grand

FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA (KSLA) – A customer at a North Carolina Krispy Kreme restaurant gets something even sweeter than a dozen hot glazed donuts, about five thousand dollars in cash.

A clerk at the store in Fayetteville accidentally handed over a box of doughnuts that also contained the stores cash receipts on Friday.

Police say that before taking the money to be deposited, a manager put the cash in a doughnut box as a safeguard against theft.

Police also say the clerk did not know about the routine, and accidentally handed the wrong box to a customer at the drive-thru window. As of today, no one has come forward to return the money.
