SOUTH GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (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 tells The Post-Star of Glens Falls 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.
