Biker loses $2,000, learns of kindness of strangers

OMAHA, Neb. – An Omaha man is smiling with relief because a posse of strangers rounded up and returned more than $2,000 that spilled from his dropped wallet.

Anthony Burres says he was riding his motorcycle Thursday when his wallet loaded with hundred-dollar bills fell from his pocket onto the street.

Burres says a driver followed him for several blocks, flagged him down, and told him of his loss.

When he returned to the scene, he couldn’t believe his eyes. Several other drivers had stopped, picked up the money, and were waiting for him so they could return it.

Says Burres: “About eight to 10 people just handed me all kind of money.”

Burres says only one $100 bill was missing from his original $2,500.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
