KINGSTON, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a homeless man who last year turned in a lost wallet stuffed with money has done it again.

Police in the city of Kingston in New York's Hudson Valley say 67-year-old Hassell "Junior" Barber approached an officer on May 9 and said he wanted to turn in a "wad" of cash he had found on the ground.

The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports that police aren't saying how much money Barber found. They're attempting to locate the owner.

The money was found on the same street where Barber discovered a wallet containing $485 in cash last July.

He turned it in to police, who tracked down the owner.

Kingston police posted that story on the department's Facebook page, leading to numerous calls from people offering to help Barber. He declined the offers.
