In December, an honest cleaning service worker found $13,000 cash in an iPad case at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida. He promptly returned it to its owner.

Last Friday, a janitor at Thunder Valley Casino in Lincoln, California, did the same.

Meuy Saelee found $10,000 in cash in the casino's restroom. Instead of quietly pocketing the money, she called her boss and turned it in.

The casino used surveillance cameras to track down the owner, Linh Hoang, who gave Saelee a $500 reward.

"She said, 'Thank you,' that's all. Then, I walked back," said Saelee.

Hoang has made headlines previously — for leaving her young kids home alone so she could gamble.

Saelee gave her supervisor $50 of her reward.

This isn't the first time Saelee's returned a large sum of money. She previously handed in $15,0000.

Saelee joins the long list of honest money-finders.

In September, a Las Vegas cab driver turned in the $221,510 left in his taxi.

In November, a Vienna bus driver turned in the almost $500,000 left on his bus. Earlier that month, an honest Singapore cabbie returned almost $1 million in cash.
