AOL.COM - After months of investigations, the City Council of Bastrop, Texas, has decided to let a homeless man named Timothy Yost keep the $77,000 worth of cash and collectible gold coins that he found by the Colorado River earlier this year, Fox 7 News reports.
"It means everything to him. He has a whole future ahead of him. He has the opportunity to make plans and have a real future," Aleta Peacock, Yost's attorney said after the City Council's announcement.
