10-year-old Antioch boy recognized for returning missing wallet

ANTIOCH, Calif. (KGO) -- A 10-year-old boy from Antioch who returned a missing wallet its rightful owner was recognized Tuesday night during a city council meeting.

Nasim Lawrence found a wallet containing a woman's driver's license, a debit card, and $38 in cash at a motocross event in Oakland in January. He mailed the wallet to its owner, Taylor Sloan, in Sonoma County, along with an adorable letter.

"The fact that he took the time to write it and it was so cute and my favorite line was -- I'm glad I got it instead of some bad person," said Sloan.
