Since he didn’t find the wallet even after searching for it at the end of his shift he just assumed that someone found the wallet and decided to keep it.
Three years passed since the man lost his wallet. This month, when Harold Walls came earlier to work, his supervisor had a nice surprise. The wallet was returned to Harold Walls and the $800 were all there. The story of how the wallet was returned is even more interesting then the returning act itself.
A farmer in Maine bought in 2012 the trash truck, used by Walls and his colleague Rick Webb that day, at auction. The farmer eventually disassembled the seat frame from the cab and found Walls’ wallet wedged far behind the seats. The man mailed the wallet back and this is how the long lost wallet found its way back to its rightful owner.
