WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) — Steve Martin is known as a wild and crazy guy, but he's also a lucky one: A stranger found his wallet on a Pennsylvania street and returned it to the entertainer.

Martin apparently lost his wallet while bicycling before performing Tuesday night in Wilkes-Barre (WILKS'-ba-ree). 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.
