A New Jersey man was left wondering where his $3,000 cash had gone after a job in Pennsylvania. Turns out, the answer was blowin' in the wind.

A Harrisburg-area police officer gearing up to catch speeders early Saturday spotted several $100 bills fluttering in the breeze along the road. Camp Hill police Officer Lane Prior then found a folder containing the rest of the cash and contact information for the man who lost it.

Prior tracked down the man, Jose Castilao, and returned the money.

Castilao had been on his way home Friday night after working an event at a Harrisburg-area country club when he realized the folder with his payment was missing.

Camp Hill's police chief says the officer's handling of the windfall speaks well of him.
