BOSTON (CBS) — A South Bay Mall employee had $2,400 in cash, $39,500 in travelers checks and a passport returned to him by a homeless man who found his backpack.
Boston Police officers at South Bay Mall were flagged down by a man in front of the TJ Maxx Store.
The man said he found a black backpack that contained a large sum of money and a passport in the front of the store.
Officers took the backpack and its contents.
The Good Samaritan could only provide officers with his name and the address of the shelter where he currently lives, Boston Police said.
Officers notified store security at the South Bay Mall about the backpack.
Later Saturday night, police were contacted by an employee of Best Buy who said he lost his backpack.
The passport matched the man’s identity and his backpack was returned to him.
