$75,000 APPEARS AT SALVATION ARMY CENTER

A manila envelope a man dropped off at a Salvation Army center had a simple message written on it: "Jesus Saves." Inside was $75,000 in cash.

"I said, `Oh my God.' I took it to my supervisor. I was out of breath," said Catrecia Johnson, a receptionist who took the envelope from the man Thursday and didn't get his name.Howell Pearre, a Salvation Army spokesman, said the money will be treated as a donation if authorities determine it was not illegally gotten.
