HOUSTON, Texas — The plumber who found cash and checks in the wall of Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church reportedly received $20,000 from Crimestoppers.
ABC7 reports that the plumber, who is only known as "Justin," was declared a "Good Samaritan" by Crimestoppers and given the reward.
He found the money while doing repair work at the Houston church.
The discovery came seven years after the church reported that $600,000 in cash and checks were stolen from a safe.
Police were investigating whether the money found in the wall was connected to the money that was stolen.
