An Orange County busboy was honored Tuesday for turning in $5,000 that was lost by a 90-year-old customer.
Felipe Perez, a veteran employee at Keno's Restaurant in Anaheim Hills, was cleaning the bathroom last month when he found a cash-stuffed envelope on the floor.
Perez said he promptly handed the money over to his boss.
The customer, Walter Bloom, had dropped the money and was panicked, until he found out the cash had been turned in.

Perez said he is overwhelmed by the attention he has received for his honesty.
