SPARTANBURG COUNTY, South Carolina (WYFF) — A woman whose wallet was stolen 23 years ago now has it back.
Jeri Cox Chastain was working at Doctors Memorial Hospital in Spartanburg, South Carolina at the time.
When her wallet was taken from her purse it contained her driver’s license and bank cards, but what she said she wanted most were pictures of her son that were in the wallet.
On Wednesday, a man working in the Business Technology Center on called police when he found a wallet in the ceiling in a second-floor woman’s restroom.
The man said that last year he had found a wallet in another building that had been stolen in 1996.
An officer checked the wallet, and found a receipt from 1990 and the driver’s license with Chastain’s name, which at the time was Jeri Cox Maness.
Police located Chastain, who said she plans to go to city hall to pick the wallet up on Friday, and she will finally get back those missing pictures of her son.
