Jacket with cash returned to California man

Posted: Updated:
TURLOCK, Calif. (AP) -- A jacket with $3,400 in cash in the pockets has been returned to its rightful owner more than a year after it vanished from a California swap meet.
   The Modesto Bee reports (http://bit.ly/1iSYkyc) that a janitor, Bill Lowe, found the jacket while emptying a trash can at Turlock High School last week. The jacket also contained a credit union receipt that allowed officials to trace it to a Clovis man, who lost it at a January 2013 swap meet at the Stanislaus County Fairground.
   Turlock High Principal Marie Peterson tells the Bee the jacket appears to have been scooped up accidentally by student volunteers at the swap meet. From there, it looks like it ended up in a box that was recently cleared as part of a spring cleaning effort at the school.
