Woman's Cash Sum Recovered by Home Depot Employee

Friday started out to be a normal day for Bonnie Walker and her husband.

The Walkers, who have a Hawkinsville address,  had a day out together, running errands and such.

“We went to our bank (Robins Federal Credit Union), and cashed a check for $500, and my husband got a portion – what he calls his allowance, and I took the rest.” Walker said, and added, “Then we went to Home Depot.” She bought some plants and he got somethings.

On the way home, they had stopped to see her husband's son. Bonnie Walker used that time to clean out her floorboard in her car, and put all the trash in a bag, which she dumped when she got home.
