    An Ohio man says he was trying to set a good example for his children when he turned in $14,000 he found on the side of the road.

    Jake Bowers found the money April 8 as he drove his family to a park in Worthington, a Columbus suburb, WBNS-TV reports.

    Bowers said when he initially saw the bag on the roadside, he thought it might contain someone's laptop. Instead, it was filled with $100 bills.

    Bowers took the bag to the Worthington police station, and it was returned to its owner.
