Christmas came early for Norwalk resident Michael Lorens.
Last week, Lorens was shopping at Hi-Miler, located on Townsend Avenue, when he pulled money out of his pocket just like he had a thousand times before.
What Lorens didn't notice at the time was he also had pulled out a signed check.
"The check hit the ground right then," he said. "I didn't even know I had lost it. I was getting ready to go to the bank."
Lorens said the check was for a sizable amount from a recent auction.
