An eagle-eyed bus driver and the owner of a missing wallet
perfectly timed their entry into the Dunedin Police Station
Sergeant Ben Butterfield, of Dunedin, said the man's wallet
had been left on the roof of his vehicle after he and his
wife left the Waikouaiti races on New Year's Day.
The wallet was later spotted on the road by a passing bus
The bus driver yesterday visited the station to hand over the
wallet, which contained cash and other personal effects, at
exactly the same time its owner was asking about the missing
''It is the first time I have ever seen that happen,'' Sgt
''It shows the honesty of good Dunedin folk.''
