ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- Bill Vint Jr. did the right thing when he found a money bag filled with $450 in cash and checks. He returned it to a pizza parlor.

Vint was bicycling Friday when he passed something on the road that resembled a bank deposit bag. He hesitated before turning around, and unzipped the bag expecting to find nothing -- it was anything but empty.

Studying a receipt inside the bag, Vint alerted Chris Dunning, manager of 5 Buck Pizza in Cedar City and met up with Dunning's wife to give the money bag back.

Vint says his mother always told him not to keep anything that wasn't his.

Vint builds pools for a living, and this year has been tough. He's helped install only five pools this year, down from 30 in each of the past two years.
