Transit worker finds bag with $15K in cash in middle of road

UPPER DARBY, Pa. (AP) — A suburban Philadelphia transit worker has found a bag loaded with over $15,000 in the middle of a road and turned it in to police.

Rob Tracey was driving home from work Monday night when he spotted the black bag.

Tracey says he thought it was a purse. But when he opened it, he saw dozens of crisp $100 and $20 bills.

The 61-year-old Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority worker immediately called police.

Upper Darby Superintendent of Police Michael Chitwood says "to turn that kind of cash in" makes Tracey "truly a good Samaritan."

It's unclear who lost the money.

Tracey says his wife assured him he  did the right thing, even though he was $15,000 richer "for about a half hour."
