A New Jersey man was reunited with his wallet nearly 50 years after it was stolen during a burglary at his parents’ house.

Dennis Helmer, 78, of Westmont, received a call recently
from Don Williams, who told him a wallet containing documents with his
name was found in the ceiling of his Bellmawr home by a contractor.
wallet’s contents included Helmer’s 1957 Selective Service card, a St.
Christopher Medal, a 1956 receipt for his $168 tuition payment to Drexel
University and photos including a snapshot of Helmer posing with his
Camden Catholic High School prom date.
said the wallet was apparently stolen during a burglary at his parents’
home in 1970. He said he never knew it was missing until Williams
called him.
He said the St. Christopher medal was a gift from his grandmother that has now been transferred to his current wallet.
“She said to always have it with me,” Helmer told
