DETROIT - A homeless man searching for returnable bottles in a trash bin found 31 U.S. savings bonds worth nearly $21,000 in a bag of clothes.
Charles Moore, 59, took the bonds to a 24-hour walk-in homeless shelter, where a staffer tracked down the family of the man whose name was on the bonds.
"They belong to him," Moore told The Detroit News. "I did the right thing."
Ernest Lehto's family had given away many of his clothes shortly after his death in 2004.
How the bonds ended up in the trash bin is a mystery, but Lehto's family left Moore a $100 reward.
"What a good Samaritan," said Neil Lehto, who picked up the bonds Friday that had belonged to his late father.

cheapskate!

I agree, cheapskates the least they could have done would have been to pay two months rent for the guy to get him off the streets.... after all what is a couple of thousand when you still get 19,000 for yourself lol...

For real, I`d feel guilty if I gave him a reward like that.
He could have tried to keep it.

Awww give the guy a break  Lips Sealed apparently the now owner of the bonds Neil Lehto {Glad they published his name so his friends can know what an a$$ he is} only makes between 90 and 225 dollars an hour as an attorney  hit  Hope he got mugged on the way home.
