COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) -

An unemployed teacher who thought a bag on a road carried a dirty diaper found more than $200,000 and returned the cash to a bank.
    
Chase bank officials in return gave Candace Scott a $500 credit gift card.
    
Scott on Tuesday morning was driving and saw a clear bag with a blue zipper. She says it looked like money inside but then thought the bag had a soiled diaper.
    
Scott found two bundles of hundred dollar bills in the bag with a Chase label and then drove to a nearby bank branch.
    
Scott guessed the bag had about $200,000. She says the branch manager responded "or more."
    
A Chase spokesman praised Scott for returning the money but declined further comment about the cash.
