Wallet returned

San Luis ObispoFebruary 13, 2014 

On Jan. 28 around 3:15 p.m., my wallet fell out of my pocket while on a cross-town bicycle trek. I noticed it as soon as I got home and immediately reported the loss to police.

About 4:45 p.m., a young couple rang my doorbell, handed me my wallet and declined my offer of a reward. My driver’s license and some cash were gone, but all my credit cards, etc., were there.

The next morning at about 9 a.m., my doorbell rang again. It was a former Cal Poly student delivering my driver’s license.

Now that speaks volumes about our community and why I’m so grateful to be part of it. Many thanks to all concerned.

A word of caution, however. I was advised by the SLO Police Department to notify one of the credit agencies and place holds on my cards. I did that and was given an incident number. However, I discovered yesterday when I called each of the credit card companies to reactivate the cards that no hold had been placed on any of them.
