DESTIN, Fla. (AP) - After his wallet was stolen, an out-of-work handyman in the Florida Panhandle went all out trying to get it back: he contacted local media, created a website and got surveillance footage.
It wasn't just identification and credit cards in John Teeter's wallet. He had been shopping for a utility trailer and carried $2,000 in cash on him.
Miraculously, Teeter's efforts paid off.
The girl who had taken the wallet from a Subway restaurant counter, where Teeter accidentally left it, got in touch with him on Friday. She returned the money and apologized for taking it. She said she had never done anything like that before.
Teeter does not plan to press charges.
