The city of Boston, Massachusetts, can’t be an easy place to be homeless. There may be all sorts of shelters and food kitchens and stuff, but the problem with the whole enterprise is that it’s a brutally cold place to spend a winter. One homeless man, Glen James, found the solution to a lot of his money problems in the form of a bag absolutely stuffed with cash and traveler’s checks. However, Glen James isn’t selfish, he’s selfless. Homeless Glen James returned a bag containing $42,000 to its original owner.
Usually homeless people are receiving the good deeds, but when they get a chance to help others, it seems like homeless folks are always quick to turn around and help others like they’ve been helped. When James found the bag full of money at the South Bay Mall in Dorchester, he turned it right over to the police who tracked down the owner. The owner, a Chinese national, had also left his passport in the bag, which means it’s a good thing someone turned it over to him, because otherwise he would’ve had a great time trying to leave the country.
“The Good Samaritan could only provide officers with his name and the address of the shelter where he currently lives,” said a police press release
