Honest shoppers caught on camera, store manager offering reward

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY -

It pays to be on your best behavior even when you think no one is watching.  That's a lesson learned by a few young men from New Jersey after cameras caught them doing the right thing at a local store. 

The store's locks malfunctioned, keeping the lights on.  Despite being closed, the store looked open.  So when a group of guys came in and looked for a clerk to pay, no one answered.  Surveillance video shows them leaving the money for their sunglasses and batteries on the counter.

"Buddy's really wants to thank them, so we'd love for them to come forward and tell us who they are so that we can give them some gift certificates and hopefully just say thank you in person," Marci Lederman, Buddy's Small Lots.    

The store just opened at this location and the store's management says they're happy to be part of such an honest community.
