TAYLOR, Michigan (WDIV) -After a 12-year-old student in Taylor showed up to school with $20,000 in her backpack, a lot of people, including police, are left asking several questions.

"Large bills, $100 bills," said Taylor Police Chief Mary Sclabassi.

It certainly was more lunch money than the average student needs. The large sum of cash was found in the 12-year-old girl's backpack at the 6th Grade Academy on Monday. Police were called.

"Had word gotten out to maybe someone other than some other 12-year-olds, it could have put her in a dangerous position," said Sclabassi.

How did the teachers spot the money trail? Sclabassi says the student wasn't exactly keeping the cash to herself.
