WERNERSVILLE, Pa. (AP) -- A woman who found $20,000 in cash at a convenience store last month is getting a $500 reward from the armored car company that lost it.

Joi Lyn Honer found the stack of $20 bills by a cash machine in Brigantine, N.J., over Labor Day weekend and turned the money over to police in Brigantine, N.J.

"I'm grateful," Joi Lyn Honer said. "I didn't do it for the reward, but I think I have $500
that I didn't have three days ago, and that's really helpful to me," she added.

News of the reward arrived in the form of a letter from Loomis, the armored car company. Joi Lyn Honer said she has no regrets.

"If I didn't know all this was going to happen, I would still do the exact same thing," Joi Lyn Honer said.

Last week, a sanitation worker in St. Petersburg, Fla., found a plastic bag on the road that contained $65,000 after first mistaking the bag for a turtle. That money had apparently fallen from a Loomis armored car a half-hour earlier.
