(Newser) – A South Florida golf course employee found a bag stuffed with $36,000 in cash and turned it over to authorities instead of taking an easy payday. Rachel Castillo found the bag in January at the Miami Beach Golf Course. It also contained a man's name and address, and the money's rightful owner turned out to be an ailing 76-year-old. He was no longer living at the address, but officials managed to track him to an assisted living facility. Police verified that the money belonged to the man, who will get it all back.
