Honest janitor returns tourist’s bag w/ money

PAOAY, Ilocos Norte, March 25– Marlon Buen, a janitor of Malacanang of the North in Brgy. Suba, this town, returned a shoulder bag containing about P100,000 cash and a cellular phone to the real owner.

Noridel Manalo, a local tourist from Olangapo City, Zambales, was gratefully thankful to Buen when his missing bag was returned to him by the honest janitor with the money and cellphone all intact inside.

Manalo said he misplaced his bag while taking pictures inside the Malacanang of the North.

On the other hand, Buen told the media that when he found the abandoned bag, he and his father quickly decided to bring it to the nearby Bombo local radio station in Laoag City which later broadcast it as a lost-and-found item. (tri-media report)
