Honest Boston Cab Driver Turns In $187,000 Left In Backseat
Police say the Boston Hackney Driver picked up his passenger near Mass. Ave and Tremont Street Friday afternoon. After dropping him off, the driver realized the rider left his backpack behind.
While looking for an ID, the driver discovered there was about $187,000 inside the bag. His next move was to bring the backpack and cash straight to Boston Police headquarters.
Soon after, police got a call from the backpack owner. He came down to the station, proved the cash was his, and gave the cab driver a big thank you.
“This hackney driver exhibited exemplary behavior and his honest deed should be recognized,” Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said in a statement. “His actions represent the high standards that our department has for our drivers.”
