The boys were exploring the woods in their neighborhood and returned holding an old wallet with a sheriff's badge stamped Richard K. Jones. He had lost the wallet a dozen years ago.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. The sheriff of Butler County, Ohio, is thanking two local kids for their detective work. Chad Oberholtzer's 7- and 9-year-old were exploring the woods in their neighborhood. They returned from the wilderness holding a dusty old wallet and a sheriff's badge stamped Richard K. Jones. Jones, who is still the sheriff today, had lost that wallet a dozen years ago. The sheriff's office said it gave the two siblings some stuffed animals as a reward.
