Nearly unbelievably, a taxi-cab driver in Las Vegas found over $200,000 in a bag in his van. Luckily for the owner of the cash, the cabby turned the money in and for his honesty and integrity was given $2,000 by the money's rightful owner.
A Las Vegas taxi driver found $221,510 while cleaning out his van last month.
Adam Woldemarim, the driver, discovered the cash stuffed in a soft laptop case that was left between the seats of the Virgin Valley Cab vehicle. Woldemarim then did what anyone feeling lucky in Sin City would do: He turned it in.
The 42-year-old from Ethiopia took the case to the cab company's security office, which soon got a call from the case's owner, who, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, "won big at the Wynn and was on his way to the airport when he [realized] he forgot a little something."
