(AP) Police have been leaving a cash-filled purse and a bag with a DVD player in unattended shopping carts outside stores in Manchester, N.H.


They have been glad to find that most holiday shoppers do the right thing.


Officers have been running the sting for about a week at shopping centers. So far, Manchester police Lt. Maureen Tessier says, most people notice the bag and purse and take steps to return them.


Just two people have been arrested after taking the items and putting them in their cars.


Under the law, a person who obtains lost or mislaid property must try to return it.


Asked if officers were surprised that most people have been honest, Tessier said: I think we should all have that expectation that everyone's going to do the right thing.
