A suburban Philadelphia transit worker found a bag loaded with over $15,000 in the middle of a road and turned it in to police.
The Philadelphia Inquirer says Bob Tracey was driving home from work Monday night when he spotted a black bag in the street.
Tracey says he thought it was a woman’s purse, so he pulled over to grab it. When he opened it he saw dozens of crisp $100 and $20 bills.
The 61-year-old Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority worker immediately called police.
Upper Darby Superintendent of Police Michael Chitwood says “to turn that kind of cash in” makes Tracey “truly a Good Samaritan.”
It’s unclear where the money came from.
Tracey says his wife assured him he did the right thing , even though he was $15,000 richer “for about a half hour.”
