SUNSET PARK - A Brookyln bus driver showed his holiday spirit recently, returning a large sum of lost money to a passenger.

Maureen Rice had left a pocketbook with more than $2,300 in cash in it on a B61 bus. The driver, Reuben Cornick, noticed and returned it to the depot.

Rice was able to retrieve the funds within a few hours and rewarded the driver for helping her locate the money.
