(Newser) – At the very least, it would have been an easy $2,000. That's how much cash was in the envelope that 23-year-old Brian DiCarlo found in a strip-mall parking lot in Clackamas, Oregon, reports KATU-TV. It also had a cashier's check for $38,000, money for a house down payment by the woman who had dropped it (and was going crazy trying to find it). Luckily for Sharon Davis, DiCarlo turned the money into police, and they were able to track her down, reports KPTV-TV.

"This is all for her stuff," says DiCarlo. "If she loses it, I mean, she can’t do what she was hoping to do and so I would have hoped that someone would have done it for me." Davis gave him a $300 reward for his honesty. “I was so stunned and so stressed, I swear I was going to have a heart attack or a stroke," she says.
