SOUTH GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - An upstate New York woman who put $882 in cash into a mailbox by mistake has gotten the money back, thanks to the U.S. Postal Service.

Susan Archambault says that she withdrew her daughter's income tax refund last month and left the money in the bank envelope, taking it with her to her job at a local church.

Her daughter was supposed to stop by that day to get the money but didn't show up. Hours after Archambault dropped a stack of business envelopes into a mailbox, she realized the envelope with her daughter's money was at the bottom of the stack.

She called post office officials, who eventually found the money at a postal distribution center and mailed the cash back to her.
