Golf Course Worker Returns $36K in Cash

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.
