OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha man is smiling with relief because a
posse of strangers rounded up and returned more than $2,000 that
spilled from his dropped wallet.
Anthony Burres says he was riding his motorcycle Thursday when his wallet loaded with hundred-dollar bills fell from his pocket onto the street.
Burres says a driver followed him for several blocks, flagged him down, and told him of his loss.
When he returned to the scene, he couldn't believe his eyes. Several other drivers had stopped, picked up the money, and were waiting for him so they could return it.
Says Burres: "About eight to 10 people just handed me all kind of money."
Burres says only one $100 bill was missing from his original $2,500.
