WHEATON – Gary Thompson (right) of Carpentersville, who is an employee of AlphaGraphics in Wheaton, is a bit richer after finding one of the Downtown Wheaton Association's Hidden Cash Dash envelopes June 25.

It was one of six in the city's downtown, and included $40 cash and a $10 downtown Wheaton gift card.

The association released six clues to aid in the search. Thompson and coworker Danny Mecler (left) were trying to figure out each one, when they realized the clue "It's a Mod, Mod world!" related to Wheaton Drama and found the envelope outside the theater.
