Homeless Hudson Valley Man Turns in Lost Cash Found on Street

Authorities say a homeless man who drew national attention last year for turning in a lost wallet stuffed with money has done it again.

Police in the Kingston, New York, say 67-year-old Hassell "Junior" Barber approached an officer last Thursday and said he wanted to turn in a "wad" of cash he had found on the ground.

The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports that police aren't saying how much money Barber found. They're attempting to locate the owner.

The money was found on the same street where Barber found a wallet containing $485 in cash last July.

He turned it in to police, who tracked down the owner.

Kingston police posted that story on the department's Facebook page, prompting numerous calls from people offering to help Barber. He declined the offers.
