Homeless Man Returns $1,000 To SoCal Woman

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) - A homeless man who found a purse containing nearly $1,000 returned it to a needy mother of three - but admits he thought about keeping the cash.

The man, identified by the Victorville Daily Press only as Chris, told the newspaper he has been trying to save $700 to move into an apartment.

He said, "I can't say I was perfect because for a tenth of a second, I thought about taking it."

But he added "it wasn't my money."

Nancy Daniels of Rancho Cucamonga says she offered the man a $50
reward but he turned her down. Daniels says she is now going to be
able to pay her rent because of Chris' honesty.

Daniels had cashed a check from her parents and forgot her purse
on the roof of her car Tuesday in a Target parking lot.
