NASHVILLE, GA (WALB) -

A Berrien County man now has his wallet...and his paycheck...back thanks to three Berrien County teenagers.

Kelsey and Kayla Kincaid were taking a road trip down Highway 168 towards Homerville with a friend at the beginning of August when they saw something on the side of the road. When they got out to see what it was, they realized it was money.

They ended up finding the entire paycheck and the wallet belonging to Charles Rowe, a Berrien County resident, so the teens tracked him down and returned the money and the wallet the very next day.

"We were just pickin' up money and we're like, 'wow, this is crazy!' We're wonderin' what happened and we ended up finding a wallet," said Kayla Kincaid, as she recalled her emotions when they first came upon the money. "[The teens] came to Harveys, brought me my wallet, and I told 'em thank you with all my heart," said Charles Rowe.

Rowe said he was fishing with a friend and left his wallet sitting on the outside of his friend's car, but forgot to grab it before they drove home for the day and the wallet flew off.
