ROCK HILL, S.C., Nov. 16 (UPI) -- Four South Carolina men returned a wallet to a 73-year-old man after finding it in a Dumpster.

Guillermo Guerra, an El Salvador native who works at White Tiger Furniture in Rock Hill, said he discovered the wallet in the trash bin outside of the business while throwing some cardboard boxes away Nov. 3, The (Rock Hill) Herald reported Tuesday.

Guerra and his boss, Jim Wyatt, visited the neighboring Hydra Tech Transmissions to find out whether the owners, Frank Leone and Mike Allen, were familiar with the 73-year-old man whose identifiction and credit cards were inside the wallet.

The men were unable to find anyone who knew the man, so they used a 44-cent stamp to send a letter to the address on the ID explaining how they had found the wallet.

Allen and Leone said the man came into their shop Friday and told them the wallet had been lost or stolen when he'd stopped recently to help a pair of stranded motorists whose vehicle had run out of gas nearby.

The men said they refused the man's offer of a cash reward.

"It only costs 44 cents to do the right thing for somebody," Allen said.
