PALM COAST, Fla. – A 27-year-old central Florida man is being recognized for honesty after finding a wallet with $3,400 inside and turning it over to Flagler County deputies.

Turns out an Orlando woman lost the wallet earlier this month in the Palm Coast Landing shopping center while visiting the beach with her children. 

Kevin Miller told the Daytona Beach News-Journal he knew someone was depending on that money and he's glad it's been returned to her. The woman's name hasn't been released.

He says he spotted the wallet Aug. 5 in a shopping center parking lot. He says he decided to pick it up after seeing two nearby teens eyeing it. He immediately called the Flagler County Sheriff's Office.

“I believe that God put me there at the right time to do the right thing," Miller told the newspaper. "Trust me, I could’ve used that money. I didn’t do it to get nominated for any types of awards. I just did it because it’s the right thing to do and I know that God works in mysterious ways.”
