72-Year-Old Taxi Driver Who Found And Returned $187,000 Is Disappointed For Getting Only $100 Reward

72-year-old taxi driver, Raymond MacCausland discovered his passenger has forgotten his luggage inside his cab after a trip in Boston, USA on Tuesday 5th July 2015. On checking for ID cards inside the luggage in order to contact the owner, Raymond found huge stacks of notes that amounted to $187,000 (about 64 million naira).

Raymond said: "That’s the way I am. I don’t steal anything; I’ve never been a crook. I thought maybe he would give $500 or $1,000, maybe one of those bundles. "I’ve never seen money like that before. It was quite a sight when they dumped it on the table."

After the money was returned to the owner - a once homeless man who recently acquired the fortune by inheritance -  Police Commissioner William Evans said in a statement: "The money was returned to the unnamed man after police determined he was the rightful owner. This hackney driver exhibited exemplary behavior and his honest deed should be recognized."
