Employees return 'Pot of Gold'
Submitted By Frank Criscenti
For years, a Hayward resident had heard about gold coins hidden by his mother. Decades passed with no sign of the coins and he figured someone else found them and they had been stolen. He decided to have several pieces of old furniture hauled off from his mother's house by a nearby junk hauler, Junk King and Recyclers in Fremont.
Two employees arrived and started hauling away the old items but while breaking down an old dresser, Noe F. Casares and Eric Sanchez came upon the lost "pot of gold," a cache of gold coins hidden in the back of the dresser. They immediately brought the coins to the customer who confirmed, "The coins turned out to be worth a lot of money." This "fairy tale" ending illustrates that there are still honest people in this world, willing to do the right thing.
