Steve Martin is a lucky guy: A stranger found his wallet on a Wilkes-Barre street and returned it to the entertainer, The Associated Press reports.

Martin apparently lost his wallet while bicycling before performing Tuesday night. Will Beekman, programming director at the concert hall where Martin performed, says a man working on a city street found the wallet. He knew Martin's bluegrass show was in town, so he contacted the concert hall to say he'd found it.

Beekman says Martin insisted on thanking the man in person, but he wasn't sure whether the man got a reward. The wallet had Martin's driver's license and credit cards but no cash. Beekman says he didn't get the man's name.
