A suburban Philadelphia transit worker found a bag loaded with over $15,000 in the middle of a road and turned it in to police.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Bob Tracey was driving home from work Monday night when he spotted the black bag.

Tracey said he thought it was a purse. But when he opened it, he saw dozens of crisp $100 and $20 bills.

The 61-year-old Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority worker immediately called police.

Upper Darby Superintendent of Police Michael Chitwood said "to turn that kind of cash in" makes Tracey "truly a good Samaritan."

It's unclear who lost the money.

Tracey said his wife assured him he did the right thing, even though he was $15,000 richer "for about a half hour."
