    Boys find $100,000 in river...then hand it in to police

    * Teenage boys find $100,000 while fishing
    * Family decides to hand it in to police
    * 'We're sweet', boys say of losing cash

    AS FAR as big catches go, they don't get much bigger.

    Two teenage brothers fishing in a creek near a town west of Lismore discovered $100,000 cash in a bag on the creek bank - and handed it in to police.

    The boys' mother said she was proud of her sons and confident they'd done the right thing. In a case giving "the one that got away" a whole new meaning, she admitted the family had agonised over the dilemma before deciding to do the right thing.

    "I wrestled with it, to be honest," she told The Daily Telegraph. "It was a very hard decision but one of my boys said, 'We were sweet before and we're sweet now'. I thought that was the most divine thing to hear."

    She said she knew they had made the right decision after they visited police in Lismore on Saturday to hand over the cash.

    "They (the boys) are so relieved it's gone," she said. "It's a weight off their shoulders."

    Tuntable Creek runs through a small valley in northern NSW, near the notorious drug den of Nimbin, lending a sinister air to exactly what the money was for.

    The cash, concealed in plastic bags, may have washed downstream during heavy flooding earlier in the year. The matter is now the subject of a police investigation.

    A NSW Police spokesman said if the money was unclaimed, the family could make an application to the courts to keep it.

    But if it was determined the money was the proceeds of crime, it would be confiscated by the state Government.

    ''I would love to accept it back,'' said the boys' mother. ''(But) if it was dirty money, I don't want anything to do with it. I really want them (my boys) to be proud they're not part of that culture.''

    News of the discovery is sure to have the tiny community of Tuntable Creek, which boasts a primary school and not much else, awash with gossip.
