Luckily, the owner’s address was indicated on his insurance card and Shomari drove all the way to his home to surprise the owner.

He then handed out the wads of cash and returned the wallet with each content still inside.
Shomari wrote on Twitter:
“I’m driving on Wisconsin Avenue in Bethesda, Maryland. I see a black wallet in the middle of the street. I stop, look inside, find $500 cash, credit cards, and insurance cards. Drove to the address on the license. The family opened the door in shock. They’re filled with joy.”
