A university girl in Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu Province, burst into tears after finding a cash-filled purse in the street, worried she could be mistaken for a thief, the Modern Express reports.

Police near the Temple of Confucius stopped when the young woman said she'd found a purse with money but did not steal it. She then began to cry. She finally stopped when the police reassured her.

It is said the girl found the purse with nearly 1,000 yuan (US$121) early that day and lots of passers-by wondered if she was a thief.
