Man in dire need of money turns over found cash, valuables to radio station

GOA, Camarines Sur, September 20, 2016 – A dire need of money was not enough to tempt Joseph Israel of Barangay Matacla, this town, to take the wad of cash he found in a plastic bag along the national highway of Calabanga, Camarines Sur.

Israel narrated that while on his way to Calabanga via Tinambac road, he noticed motorists staring at a plastic bag that was filled with unidentified items.

For fear that the bag contained a bomb, said motorists did not dare open it, according to Israel.

He, however, took the initiative to open the bag and there found a wallet containing at least 8,000 in cash, along with some identification cards and other documents.

In an interview, he said his instinct was to try to return it.

This was despite the fact that he owed someone money, and was in fact on his way to tell said person that he did not have money to pay him back with, yet.

It did not cross my mind to keep the money for myself, even if I was in need of money myself. All I could think about was the person who was worrying about having lost the belongings, he said.

As of this writing, netizens are heaping praise over Israel, who turned over the items to radio station DZRP Radyo Partido.

Said radio station is now appealing to the public to help locate the owner, who was identified from the documents as Aida Villar, a public school teacher from Brgy. Boboan, Siruma, Camarines Sur.

The cash and other valuable items may be claimed at DZRP Radyo Partido at Matacla, Goa, Camarines Sur, according to Audie Concina of the station.
