TUGUEGARAO CITY—A janitor of a shopping mall here on Tuesday (Nov. 30) returned the P35,900 he found while cleaning the hallways.

Rio Billiones, a utility worker of SM Downtown, immediately turned over the cash he found to the staff Customer Relations Service Office who immediately reviewed the security cameras to trace the owner.

It was later found out that Loreto Sammy Cabbuag accidentally dropped the money, which came from the sales at their bicycle stall.

Cabbuag was supposed to deposit the money to a bank when he accidentally lost it.

The owner of the money and the management of SM lauded Billiones for his “act of kindness and honesty.”#
