SAO PAULO — A homeless Brazilian couple that lives under the bridges of Sao Paulo found a garbage bag filled with 20,000 reals ($10,000) on a sidewalk Monday — and promptly turned it into the police. Officials said the pair was out for a dawn stroll when they heard an alarm.They walked closer to see what was going on and stumbled on a briefcase and a garbage bag full of money. The pair alerted a nearby security guard, asking him to call the police.
“When we arrived, the couple gave us the money. It might be the money stolen last week from a Japanese restaurant,” said military police spokesman Bruno dos Santos. Jesus Silva Santos, the man who found the money, told the press that he earned a little more than $7 a day from recycling trash.“My mother taught me never to steal,” he said.— AFP
