ATLANTA (AP) - The management at a downtown Atlanta hotel is rewarding a homeless man who turned in a wallet stolen from one of its guests.
Omni Hotel managing director Scott Stuckey had been searching for the man seen in security camera footage turning the wallet in. The man heard about the search and went to the hotel late Friday afternoon.
He's being rewarded with a weeklong stay at the hotel and a cash reward.
A hotel guest from France told police a man grabbed her purse on Nov. 7.
Later that day, a man who said he was homeless came to the Omni Hotel and said he was looking in a trash can for food when he found the wallet, which contained credit cards and identification. The hotel checked the woman's name and found that she was a guest.
