Florida man returns $90K Cartier watch to owner

What would you do if a $90,000 item fell into your lap? Good Samaritan Brenni Elisee did the right thing.

The item in question was a diamond encrusted Cartier watch. The owner took it to New York for repairs. It was sent back to Miami, via Federal Express, but to the wrong address.

The owner lives on Northwest Second Street. Elisee lives on Northeast Second Street, and called the rightful owner as soon as he got the package and realized the mistake.

"He came picked it up obviously, and he thanked me," said Elisee. "And I said 'no need to thank me,' it was just the normal obvious thing to do. It's not my package so what am I going to do with it? It's his."

It turned out the owner of the watch is a financial advisor to several Miami Heat players. For his honesty, Elisee was rewarded with two playoff tickets, complete with a limo ride to the game.
