Much gratitude and appreciation to the Hackettstown resident who found a misplaced wallet on the sidewalk and turned it into the Hackettstown Police Department. Also, a sincere, "thank you", to the HPD officer who reached out and returned the wallet.
Honesty and caring are alive and well in our small town!

It is encouraging for sure.

I happened to find a wallet on my street a few weeks back. I quickly looked up the owner using his license and it showed his address was over 2 hours away. I remembered that an hour prior I saw a man loading furniture into an suv in front of a new neighbor's house where I found the wallet. I went and asked and it turned out it was the same person. The neighbor messaged him quickly to let him know. The man was grateful as it had a few hundred dollars in it as well as a bunch of cards etc. The bonus was the new neighbor feeling very pleased that he moved into a "kind and caring area". I said welcome to Hackettstown!

That's awesome Evergreen! I once dropped my wallet in a taxi in NYC and thank goodness the person in the taxi after me found it and contacted me! There are some good people in this world!

Thanks for posting. I lost my wallet in Walmart last year. I actually dropped it in the produce dept. (probably among the oranges, lol). Anyway, a worker returned it to customer service. I know that feeling of gratitude!
Glad someone returned your wallet.
