A LaCrosse bus driver is being recognized for his honest act after finding and returning deposit bags full of cash. Gene Rochester said he saw two bags on the road as he was driving his normal route. He stopped to investigate and "almost fell over" when he discovered $10,000 in the bags.

Now, I've screwed up a lot of things at work, but I've never lost 10-grand! I can't imagine the stress the employee that was responsible for taking that money to the bank must have felt when he/she realized the money was missing! Thankfully, a good samaritan found the money. In the clip below, Gene told WXOW-TV that he returned the bags to Kwik Trip because, "my conscience would not have allowed me to keep the money. It would be out of my character."

No word on if Kwik Trip rewarded Gene for returning the money.
