Uber driver returns $700 to customer in Houston

HOUSTON, Texas (WPVI) -- If you've ever left something behind after an Uber ride, you know it can be tricky to get back, especially if it's money.

Earlier this week it happened to Rogelio Garcia who lost more than $700.

He accidentally left behind his money clip in an Uber he had taken in Houston, Texas.

Garcia turned to the app to report a stolen item, and was connected to his driver Ade Adeleye.

Drivers for Uber can't contact former passengers, so Ade had been waiting for Garcia to call.

Garcia ended up giving Ade an extra-large tip. He gave him $100 as a thank you for saving the day.
