For children across the world, summer vacation is one of the highlights of the year. Haylie Wenke can certainly attest to that, as she joined her little brother Reagan and friend Ashley Dayton for a trip to the local park in July 2018. While on their way home, though, they found a wallet containing $700 – and a CCTV camera picked up what happened next.
Residents of Aurora, Colorado, Haylie and her brother live with their parents, Kerri and Ryan Wenke. Enjoying the freedoms of the long summer vacation, the teenager decided to ride her bike down to Great Plains Park on July 18, 2018. And she brought her friend Ashley and younger brother Reagan along for the trip.
Known for its outdoor splash pads, Great Plains Park is a hugely popular area for families in Aurora, while also offering walking paths, a basketball court and a softball diamond. Haylie, Reagan and Ashley spent close to two hours there before heading back home, but their bike ride came to an unexpected stop along the way.
