James Tully, the Pennsylvania man who was mistaken for Eric Frein more than 20 times while Frein was on the loose, is going to get something for his troubles: A new car.

After Tully’s story hit the news, an acquaintance attempted to raise $2,500 to buy him a car so he wouldn’t have to walk to work — where he was constantly stopped by law enforcement who thought he was Frein. Friends and strangers raised $24,217.

Eric Frein was captured on October 30th after a 48-day manhunt.
