A homeless man searching through garbage bins for recyclable cans found a missing wallet and had it returned to its owner.
Kim Bogue, who works as a janitor in the city's government buildings, realized that her wallet was missing last week and doubted she'd ever get back the $900 and credit cards inside, she said.
"I prayed that night and asked God to help me," said Bogue, who was saving the money for a trip to her native Thailand.
Days later, a homeless man found the wallet wrapped in a plastic bag in a trash bin, where Bogue had accidentally thrown it away with her lunch. He gave it to Sherry Wesley, who works in a nearby building.
"He came to me with the wad of money and said, 'This probably belongs to someone that you work with, can you return it,'" Wesley said.
Workers at a nearby relief kitchen said the man, who didn't want to be identified, insists on paying for his food.
"He has a very good heart," said Bogue, who gave the man a $100 reward. "If someone else found it, the money would be gone."
