Naia security guard returns lost wallet

A security guard at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) returned a black wallet containing more than P40,000 cash to its owner, airport authorities reported on Wednesday.

The wallet contained $770 (P39,270), and Philippine currency worth some P3,000, an identification and credit cards.

Aviation Operations and Management Specialist Inc. Chief, Ret. Chief Supt. Librado Matibag reported to Manila International Airport Authority General Manager Ed Monreal that an employee of  Safety and Security Specialist found the wallet near Boarding Gate 10 of the Naia Terminal 1. This was where the departing passengers line up to board an Asiana Airlines flight bound for Incheon, South Korea.

Security guard Roquita Cuarte found the wallet while the passengers were boarding the plane. She immediately called the attention of Asiana Airlines personnel to locate the passenger who owns the wallet. The owner was located after he acknowledged the call on the paging system. He received his wallet from airline and security personnel. He said he appreciated their honesty, then boarded his flight.


Monreal said this proved anew that there are many honest personnel at the airport.
