"To me, I figured this is the right thing to do if I take it and find whoever's purse it was because if the roles were reversed and I had lost something with a significant sum of money inside, I know I would want it back for sure," Zeini told KCOY.
Police were able to track down the owner of the purse.
For Zeini's troubles and honesty, she gave him a $100 reward, KCOY reported.
Sheriff's deputies say that the woman was going on a hike and left her purse on the roof of her car and drove away, KCOY reported.
