He did the right thing.

According to a report from Tennessee television station WKRN, a man searching for cans in a convenience story dumpster found something more valuable then a few old pieces of aluminum -- $3,800 in cash along with some bank deposit slips.

The man turned the money in to the managers of the convenience story, who contacted police, according to the WKRN report. Police returned the money to its owner and the man who found the money received a $400 reward from the owner, according to the WKRN report.
