This past weekend, one of our members was out doing a little detecting in a local community. It was approaching late afternoon and he and his detecting partner were about to head home. Just before leaving the location that they had been detecting, our member noticed a bit of debris around a tree. Always wanting to leave a location cleaner than when they arrive, he went over to pick up what he thought was trash. As it turns out, the trash turned out to be a stack of cards including gift cards, medical id’s, credit cards, and a driver's license.
It took a couple of days, but our member was able to track down the person who was depicted on the driver's license. A few months ago, their purse was stolen from their vehicle and these items were in the purse. While no purse was discovered, the items that were found have been returned to their grateful owner.
Always keep your eyes open while out detecting. You never know what you might find and you might just make someone else very happy.
