An agent from the Specialized Metro Security Corps (Cesmet) returned more than half a million pesos to a Santo Domingo Metro commuter after she left the money forgotten in one of the cars of the public transportation system.

Cesmet agent Michel Antonio Céspedes reported the finding of the bag that had inside RD$517,000.

The Office for the Reorganization of Transportation (OPRET) reported through a press release that both the bag and the cash were returned to their rightful owner, thanks to the “immediate” follow-up of the lost object protocol.

He did good, for the woman, himself, and Cesmet. It shows a good upbringing and personal values. We are all proud of him.

Shouldn't be the focus on the woman with (at least) such an amount traveling by metro and forgetting this bag (probably she had more bags)...
Something fishy going on here.
To check if somebody is honest you use another amount, something like RD$ 1,000 or RD$ 2,000, not more than half a million.

Early start of dementia looks like that.

I'm surprised this guy still has a job.
I'll bet his superiors were pissed.

That is a lot of money to be carrying around on the Metro train. I would assume that her name or business information was in the bag? That is great though the money was returned to her.

The newspaper article clearly states that the woman said the money was loaned to her by a bank: "...[p]roducto de un préstamo que fue a retirar a una entidad bancaria."
