Sam McIntosh was scootering to a friend's house on Christmas Eve when he spotted the wallet lying on a school playground. He picked it up to look for identification - and found more money than he'd ever seen before in two compartments."In one of them there was a big slab of $100s and $50s and in another compartment there were $10 and $20 notes."
Sam enlisted his policeman dad Bruce's help but the pair were not unsuccessful in tracking the man down. Bruce logged the wallet at the police station as a found item and the owner, who was visiting from Australia, turned up soon after to claim it.
