She discovered the stack of money under her sandwich when she returned to the office to begin eating her lunch.

The grandmother knew she couldn't keep the extra cash, despite being in massive financial debt, and made the decision to call the authorities.

She told WSB-TV: “I started counting it and when I got to $500, I stopped and just put it back in the envelope, closed the envelope put the sandwich back the way I got it and just slid it to the side until the officer got here.”

Although she made the decision to call the police, JoAnne joked that the temptation to go shopping was present while her fuel tank was nearly empty at the time.

She said: “For a second. We thought about going shopping. I said I should have kept a 20 because I’m sitting on E.
