Stranger Keeps New Yorker’s Wallet ‘Cause It Kinda Cool,’ Cash ‘Because I Needed Weed’

A man who lost his wallet at a concert in New York received an interesting letter in the mail several days later, KTLA sister station WPIX reported Wednesday.

The man's ID and some of his other cards were returned to him with this letter:

"Dear Reilly Flaherty, I found your wallet and your driver's license had your address so here's your credit cards and other important stuff. I kept the cash because I needed weed. The Metrocard because well the fare's $2.75 now and the wallet 'cause it kinda cool. Enjoy the rest of your day. Toodles, Anonymous."

Flaherty, upon reading the note, immediately associated this gesture with the "Breaking Bad" anti-hero Walter White – a cancer-stricken chemistry teacher who turns into a drug dealer – blurring the lines between good and evil.

"To be honest, I was thinking this person is the Walter White of wallet returning," Flaherty wrote to a friend. "They start out with seemingly good intentions, but then you quickly realize they're actually just a villain plagued with an insatiable appetite for MetroCard spending and marijuana-infused subway rides– hurting everyone they love around them. Sadly, this is the plot."

The cash doesn't matter, according to Flaherty.

"The fact is, there's a pot-smoking modern-day Robin Hood out there who knows my blood type, knows where I sleep at night," he joked. "So that's terrifying, frankly."
