Grand Rapids, Mich. • That was no burrito.

Three people who ordered food at a Taco Bell drive-thru in western Michigan got something more valuable: $3,600 in cash.

A Taco Bell employee mistakenly passed the cash to the trio instead of their food Saturday. The money was returned a short time later.

Kennidi Rue told WZZM-TV that she and two friends thought about keeping the money but decided they'd feel guilty if they didn't return it. Grand Rapids police Capt. Jeff Hertel confirms the incident, telling MLive.com that an officer was called to assist.

The money was in a store bag for deposit at a bank. A message seeking comment was left with Taco Bell.

Rue, boyfriend Grant Kruse and another friend, Luke Postma, got their meal when they returned the money.
