Missing $2,000 mailed back to owner

A Florida woman who lost her wallet with $2,000 cash at a store said the money was returned by an anonymous woman who said her daughter had the money.

Oviedo police said the woman was shopping last week at a Charlotte Russe clothing store in the Oviedo Marketplace shopping center when she accidentally left without picking up her wallet from a bench where she had set it down, WKMG-TV, Orlando, Fla., reported Thursday.

Police said the store does not have security cameras and Charlotte Russe employees were unable to locate the wallet.

The woman later told police she received a package in the mail containing her wallet, her driver's license and the $2,000. She said the anonymously mailed package included a note from a woman who wrote she had discovered the items among the belongings of her daughter, who had planned to spend the cash at Victoria's Secret.
