Upper Darby police are applauding a SEPTA employee for turning in $15,000 that he found in the road.

61-year-old Bob Tracey says he was driving home Monday night around midnight, when he saw a bag in the middle of State Road.

He pulled over and got it, saw the large sum of money inside, and immediately called police.

Tracey explains, "When I saw all the money, I also thought it might have been a nighttime drop for a business. So I had to turn it in, it's just the way I am."

Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says, "We deal with dirt bags day in and day out. We lock people up every day for stealing and robbing and pillaging, and here's a gentlemen who comes in, who finds 15-grand and turns it right over."

Police say no one has come forward yet to claim the money.
