ATLANTA, March 6 (UPI) -- Police in Georgia said $7,000 cash turned in by an honest airport employee has been returned to its rightful owner.

Pamela North Hollowaay, a part-time employee at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, said she discovered the envelope filled with 70 $100 bills by the curb outside a park-and-ride area at the international terminal, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Wednesday.

"I showed the money to the [shuttle] driver then I went right inside and turned it in right away," North Hollowaay said. "I could've kept the money but I didn't do that. I'm an honest citizen. I'm a taxpayer and I believe in doing the right thing."

The money was turned over to the Atlanta Police Department, which said it was reported missing by an Alabama podiatrist on his way to Costa Rica.

North Hollowaay said she was happy to hear the money made it back into its owner's hands.

"Hopefully if that ever happened to me, someone would turn my money back in too," she said.
