I found a purse bulging with cash – I very nearly spent it but my last minute U-turn ended with an even bigger reward | The Sun

A GRANDMOTHER has befriended an unlikely companion after he returned her missing wallet.

When 61-year-old Dee Harkrider lost her wallet after a trip to Walmart, she didn't expect to find it again.

But when the Arkansas native checked Facebook, she discovered a message from Delivontae Johnson, 19, letting her know he found it.

Delivontae had parked in a pharmacy parking spot to run into Walmart when he noticed a wallet sitting on a shopping cart.

He picked up the wallet and pocketed it, planning to fix his spare tire with the money.

But then he thought about his plan, and decided it was best to find the owner of the wallet.

Delivontae said:“I didn't know if she was going to come back to Walmart looking for a wallet that wasn't there.

"If they would have watched the cameras and seen I’d picked up a wallet, the police would have been at my house."

After finding Dee's drivers liscense, he began driving to her home and messaged her on Facebook to alert her to his discovery.

But Dee was in the next city over, so Delivontae drove to another town to drop off her wallet.

He told USA Today: “I wasn’t supposed to be parking in that spot but thank God I did."

They met in a restaurant parking lot, where Dee took a photo of the pair together that went viral on Facebook.

Dee said: “I wanted people to know what this young man had done for me. I had to share it."

As a reward for his honesty and kindness, Dee decided to give Delivontae a $20 bill from her wallet.

Delivontae said the reward was more than he expected, and that it felt great to do something selfless.

Dee said: "People need to know that it doesn't hurt to do a good deed nowadays."

Last year, an Australian man was reunited with his wallet 26 years after he lost it on a beach.

Paul Davis lost his wallet in 1994, while celebrating on New Years Eve with friends in New South Wales.

But a beachgoer found his wallet, complete with Paul's credit, medical and student cards and even a $5 note still inside.
