California – A Fresno man who found $125,000 in a bag decided to turn the money in despite being strapped for cash at the time. As reported by KMPH Fox 26 News, Joe Cornell, who said he only had $1 for lunch when he found the money on Tuesday, made the discovery while volunteering at the Salvation Army in Downtown Fresno.
Cornell is quoted in the report as stating, “I was watering my plants and my trees when an armored car stopped at the corner… A car pulled up saying that the ‘Brinks’ driver dropped something, but the armored car kept going.”
The money was in an orange bag in the middle of a street. Cornell who then reported the find to the police, is quoted as stating of his decision, “I’m trying to get my life together and I want them to be proud of me. I decided to do the right thing.”
KMPH Fox 26 News said that emails sent in an effort to contact Brinks regarding a reward or thank you for Cornell were not returned.
