    (circa 1991- )
    Born in Moldova
    Resided in Pacific, Washington
    Attended Todd Beamer High School in Federal Way, Washington
    Employee at Top Food & Drug in Federal Way, Washington
    Discovered a money bag containing $10,000 in the store men's restroom (November 13, 2008)
    Received media attention after the reported money was returned to its owner (November 20, 2008)
    He had only a part- time, minimum wage job to pay personal expenses.
    He was unaware of the cash amount in the money bag when he discovered and considered keeping it.
    The money's owner had stated that the cash was his life savings that he kept at home.
    A surveillance camera shot that recorded the owner leaving his money was too far away to properly identify him.
    He and his family immigrated to the United States from Moldova in 2003 with $300.00 to start anew.
    He decided to report the discovered cash after remembering his father's advice about the benefits of honest work with no cheating or stealing.
    He also decided to report the cash because of his Sunday school teaching job, stating 'I can’t be teaching little kids not to do it if I’m doing it.'
    After the cash was verified to belong to Fred W. Smith, he met with Baranuic and promised him a reward.
    He received a Chief's Commendation Medal from local police and $500.00 from Top Food & Drug officials for his actions.
    He was happy with his actions, stating 'So I don't regret it because maybe I didn't get the $10,000, but I got something you can't buy with money.'
    He was compared to the Biblical character Moses due to his nickname and actions.
