A Virginia man just wanted some hot chicken from Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'n Biscuits. But he got much more.

According to WTVR, James Minor was waiting in a Bojangles drive-thru for fresh chicken Friday after sending back a previous order. A few minutes later, an employee at the Henrico County restaurant brought Minor what appeared to be bag of food.

When Minor reached inside, he was in for a shock.

“When I opened the box up – the Bojangles chicken box – there was probably close to $4,500 in cash and also SunTrust deposit slips,” he told WTVR.

Minor, who suspected that he was being set up or an employee was trying to steal the money, hurried back to the restaurant. Minor said the store manager told him, in a negative tone, that had he not returned the money, the staff would have called police.

"Here I am doing a good thing, bringing the money back," Minor told WTVR. "Most folks probably would've kept on going and wouldn't have recognized it until they got home."

The store eventually offered Minor a tailgate party and a new meal. He later complained to a district manager and an official at the chain's corporate headquarters, who said he could have a $100 gift card.

But Minor wants something else – respect and an apology.

"And probably a cash reward," he added.
