Reunited with his $10K: Homeless Man $10,000, A homeless man was reunited with nearly $10,000 in cash that he’d accidentally left stuffed in two bank envelopes on a Florida bus bench.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports a deceased relative had left the man almost $12,000.

Deputies say the man – who they’ve only identified as Joe for his protection – withdrew almost $10,000 and went shopping. He mistakenly left the envelopes on a Lauderdale-by-the-Sea bench.

John Harbett was looking for turtle hatchlings when he saw one cash-filled envelope. A short time later Deputy Ben Koos found the other. Both men took the money to the sheriff’s office.

Investigators found a receipt from a clothing store, got a surveillance picture of “Joe” from the store and tracked him down.

The money is back in his account.

Joe planned to use the money to move to Pennsylvania to be with his family, Detective Danny Mursell told the newspaper.
