“I Saw My Money Flying Away, But There are Good People in This World and You’re One of Them”

On 13 November 2013, Felipe Perez, a veteran busboy of Keno’s Restaurant on La Palma Avenue in Anaheim Hills, Orange County, California, found a white envelope containing $5,000 on the floor of a bathroom stall he was cleaning while at work. Mr. Perez said, “It was not my money. How am I gonna keep it?” The money belonged to Warren Bloom, age 90, who said to Mr. Perez, “I saw my money flying away, but there are good people in this world and you’re one of them.” Deputy Chief Raul Quezada of the Anaheim Police Department told Mr. Perez, a father of four, “It’s refreshing that we have people such as yourself who are willing find the money and return the money.”
