Honesty pays: Good Samaritan given money he found, turned in to police

Even in challenging economic times, people do the right thing. On June 30, 2011, a construction worker at Sharp Hospital in Chula Vista found $700 in cash. He brought the money to a hospital staff member, who notified police. Information about the found money was then published in a local newspaper, but it went unclaimed. After the required waiting period had passed, a police department employee notified the good Samaritan that he was entitled to the money, and it was given to him on November 18.
