Pot-pot driver returns lost wallet

April 8 - 14, 2017

MAASIN CITY – The value of returning, as they say, is an exemplary virtue. Indeed it is.

An honest pot-pot driver from Brgy. Bato II won praises from local residents for returning a wallet he found to the authorities last Tuesday, April 4. The good samaritan found the wallet around 3:45 o’clock in the afternoon, at the city bus terminal in barangay Combado.

Instead of keeping the money for himself, Brigildo Ortiz, without any delay, turned-over the lost item to the Maasin City Police Station.

This was confirmed by Police Officer 2 Rey Piquero. Inside the wallet are voter’s identification card, driver’s license, and cash worth 770 pesos.

As of this writing, the police are disseminating the information around the locality in order to find the rightful owner.

“As of now, the wallet is still in our station’s custody and has not yet been claimed by anybody,” Piquero said during an SLT interview.

“Upon checking the details, we found out that one of the two I.D’s was addressed Tugas, Rizal, but we don’t know if it is really in Maasin City. So we continue to spread the information and try our best to contact the rightful owner of the found item,” Piquero ended.

The police personell were inspired by Ortiz’ act of kindness and urged other tricycle or pot-pot drivers to emulate what he has done.(By DAHLIA ORIT)
