Notes & Transcripts

When a California man who did not have much money of his own found a bag filled with cash, he knew he had to do the right thing and turn it in to police. Joe Cornell volunteers with the Fresno Salvation Army and was working downtown when he made the find. He saw an armored truck drive by and another car was yelling at the driver saying that he had dropped something. When Cornell investigated, he found an orange bag containing cash and checks. Cornell says the first thing he thought about was what he wanted his grandchildren to think about him. So he immediately went back to the Salvation Army and called his boss about the find. He also notified the local police, who told him that not many people would have turned the money in. Authorities have not said if Cornell would get a reward, but he says his reward is the way his family will view him. He said,” I’m trying to get my life together, you know so I want them to be proud of me.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell.
