Man finds $1,300 in Domino's wings box

BERKELEY, Calif. (WPVI) -- A California man returned a wad of cash accidentally delivered with his Domino's order. Now, the pizza chain is repaying him with a year's worth of free pies.

Mike Vegas says he ordered a pizza and some wings from Domino's on Friday. He ate just one slice of pizza and didn't touch the wings, which he put away in the fridge.

Later, he pulled out the wings box - only to find $1,300 instead.

It turns out that the delivery driver had been on his way to the bank and Vegas' house was his last stop.

He put the cash in the wings box for safekeeping. Lucky for him, Vegas decided to give it back.

"I wanted to keep it, believe me. But I can't, I can't do it," Vegas said.

The delivery driver was very grateful to Vegas, saying that honest people are hard to find these days.

The chain is offering Vegas free pizza for one year, an offer Vegas plans to take advantage of.

Vegas said his first job was delivering pizza for Pizza Hut when he was just 16 years old, so he really felt for the driver.
