A Germantown resident found $1,100 while she was out for a walk on Saturday.

The resident then did what many would hope anyone would do - collected the money and called the Germantown Police Department to turn it over.

On Sunday, another resident called Germantown Police Department reporting that they had lost the exact denominations found in the same area.

"I think this is a great story, a good example of what Germantown is like," Chief Peter Hoell said.

The money was returned to the owner Monday night.

*An earlier version of this story stated the resident found $11,000. We regret this error.
