4 NJ college football players rewarded for honesty

WAYNE, N.J. (AP) — Four New Jersey college football players are being rewarded for their honesty.

The members of the William Paterson University football team each received $50 gift cards after surveillance cameras captured them paying for some batteries and sunglasses even though no employees were around.

Buddy’s Small Lots in Wayne, N.J., was actually closed Sunday night. But the lock malfunctioned and the lights were on, making it appear as though it were open.

Cameras showed the men calling out for a clerk. Two can be seen depositing cash on the counter, one waving bills in the direction of a camera.

One of the players, Thomas James, tells News 12 New Jersey (http://bit.ly/14BS3of ) not everyone is a thief.
