A New York City subway passenger found a purse containing $10,000 in cash on a train platform and turned it in to the proper authorities.
The man spotted the blue Chanel bag one morning in the station at Lincoln Center in Manhattan, and decided to pick it up to see if there was any identifying information inside.
Upon looking inside, he discovered a handwritten note, however, he could not read the note since it was in Russian. The man then tried to locate a subway employee to notify, but he couldn’t track anyone down. He then decided to take the purse home and try to locate the owner.
When he arrived home, he emptied the contents of the purse, and found an envelope containing $10,000 in cash, but unfortunately no identifying information as to who the owner might be.
The man decided he needed to do the right thing and took the bag and its contents to the New York Police Department’s 20th Precinct.
As luck would have it, a woman had arrived at that very same police station that morning to file a report about a lost blue bag that she had dropped in the subway on her way to depart for a trip to Russia.
