The Santa Barbara California Highway Patrol station is praising a Good Samaritan who turned in a local’s man wallet to their office where they found the owner.

The honest community member, who prefers to remain anonymous, left the wallet with Officer Gutierrez who was able to track down the owner.

This past Tuesday, the wallet’s owner was reunited with his wallet including all the cash that was left inside.

“It felt wonderful to return found property to its owner, but it felt even better that our community trusts us to do that,” said Gutierrez.

  1. Someone with ethics and compassion and parents who taught her/him to think of others not just themself. “Finders keepers, losers weepers” is a motto for those without self-respect and integrity that cannot be “dissed” b/c those qualities are a fundamental part of them so cannot be withheld.

  2. I always put money in my wallet with all of it facing forward, like in this photo. Not necessarily “staged”. I like this story, we get so much bad/sad news. I once found $900 and had to do a detective job to find the owner.
