TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - A homeless Arizona man who returned a sack of cash to its rightful owner is being honored.
Dave Tally, 49, was recognized by the city of Tempe for his honesty after returning $3,300 to an Arizona State University student who lost the money last month.
KTAR radio reports Tally discovered the backpack and cash at a Tempe light rail station. He took the money to a homeless agency and together they found the owner, who had been planning to use it to purchase a car.
Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman says he hopes the recognition encourages others to do the same thing in similar circumstances.
