EUGENE, Ore. -- A woman found a bank bag on the street and believed there was money inside so she returned it to a bank. She was later told it contained thousands of dollars.

On Tuesday afternoon, Katie Craig said she was on her way to work when she noticed the bag in the middle of 7th Street.

Craig said initially she thought it was someone's purse, but once she got out of her car and picked it up, she realized it was a money bag from a bank because it had a lock on it.

The label had a return address to Pacific Continental Bank.

Craig said she never though twice about compromising her integrity. 

"Me being a single mother, I just bought a house, I know if I would have had that happened to me," she said. "I would have liked someone to return it to me so there was not a second thought in my mind, nor a care of how much was in it or who it belonged to. It just needed to get back to where it needed to go."

Craig said she was not given a reward, but she said she was not expecting one because integrity, honesty and truth are the values she cherishes most.
