A 6-year-old Arlington, Massachusetts, boy is being praised for spotting a bag with $2,000 cash inside and working with his father to return it.

Jasper Dopman was walking on Medford Street with his father on April 18 when he spotted a bank bag on the ground near a school.

He pointed it out to his father, who returned it to police.
