Wallets found after more than 40 years
A Virginia man said he tracked down the owners of two wallets that had apparently been inside of a wall for more than 40 years.
Jeffrey ErkenBrack of Woodwork Specialists said he was tearing out a 6-inch block wall at the Running Etc. specialty store in Virginia Beach when he came across a cache of old-fashioned beer cans and two women's wallets, the (Norfolk) Virginian-Pilot reported Wednesday.
He said he contacted the women and was able to return Moore's wallet Thursday. ErkenBrack said Dean is in Florida for the winter.
