wallet with $141 inside is returned – only eight years later

This is an insane story. A woman had her wallet stolen in 2009 but it was returned 8 years later with the cash still inside. This is the story as reported on by the UPI:
“Nursing student Courtney Connolly said the wallet was taken out of her car during a summer internship in Wellfleet, Mass., in 2009, and somehow during the ensuing eight years the wallet found its way back to Boston, where it ended up in the hands of a police officer Monday. The police officer used a pay stub in the wallet to track down Connolly’s family and handed the wallet over to her sister-in-law. Connolly said it was a shock to discover the wallet was exactly as it had been when it was taken. The cash was never used! The credit cards were never used! My social security number was never used! Connolly told WFXT-TV.”
The return of the wallet is fortuitous in two ways, the $141 that sat untouched in the wallet for eight years is the exact amount Connolly said she needs to enter an upcoming powerlifting tournament, and she passed her anatomy test the next day!
“So it’s the little things that keep jumping out at me and surprising me, she said. I really hope if anyone can take anything from this: is not to lose hope in the good things that life has to offer, Connolly said” (upi, 2017.)
