Surveillance cameras are usually installed in homes to prevent negative incidents like package thefts or home invasions, but one incident in the Elk Grove area caught on camera was the complete opposite.
Melissa Vang was home with her two young children when she heard someone at the door. Fearing the worst, she ignored it. What she later saw on her surveillance cameras surprised her.
"When I checked the video, he had walked away already," said Vang. "I was like, 'that's my husband's wallet!"...Vang would later find out that Tyler Opdyke, 18, was passing out fliers for StrikeZone Pest Control in the neighborhood. He had found the wallet stuffed with cash on the driveway of a home.
"I was knocking on the door for a minute or two. I actually heard her little girls...and was wondering why is nobody answering?" said Opdyke. "I'm like how can I find some way to let them know that I have this [wallet]. I was like 'perfect, here's a camera right there.'
