Brazilian trash collector finds $7,000
"At first I wanted to keep the money, but when I gave it back my conscience was freed."
- Jose Sebastiao Batista Breta, honest man
Cariacica,Brazil - It would have taken rubbish collector Jose Sebastiao Batista Breta nearly three years to earn the amount of cash he found in a suitcase stashed in a rubbish pile behind a lottery ticket sales office.
Hard as it was, though, he had to do the right thing. Breta found the suitcase's owner, Ailton Ronconi, and returned it on Monday.
