Taxi driver returns cash, laptop to passenger
Authorities at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) have lauded an honest taxi driver who returned about P100,000 in cash and a laptop computer left in his cab’s trunk by an overseas Filipino worker.
The driver, Ernesto Gaspan, turned over the valuables to the Manila International Airport Authority’s police department. They had been left by Arcadio Guhiting, an OFW who arrived from Qatar, at the Naia Terminal 1 on Friday morning.
The cash and computer were later returned to the owner, according to Lt. Alger Tan of the airport police.
The cash—about $2,300—and the laptop were in a bag that Guhiting had put in the trunk, along with his other luggage.
Gaspan said he dropped off Guhiting in Quezon City. The driver later returned to the airport where he discovered that the passenger had left one of his bags in the truck.
Guhiting has expressed his gratitude to Gaspan and commended him for his honesty. Jerome Aning
