SANDUSKY

On Saturday, the Rev. Cornelius Amison, 50, was the recipient of a kindness he will not soon forget -- someone turned in his wallet without taking a cent.

Amison planned to spend Saturday paying bills and buying his 20-year-old son new tires for his car, so earlier that day he withdrew money from his credit union savings account and placed it in his wallet.

On his way home, Amison stopped for a red light at the intersection of Monroe and Meigs streets when he realized he wasn't wearing his seat belt. The seat belt was caught in his driver's side door, so he opened the door to free it. He put the seat belt on and continued on his way.

It wasn't until he was all the way home that Amison realized his wallet was missing. He was on the verge of panic as he frantically searched his car. But as he searched, his daughter Myeicia, 11, came to the front door and told him a Sandusky police officer was on the phone.

The officer told Amison he was a lucky man because someone turned his wallet into the police station and there was still money in it.
