What The Employee Did After Finding $100,000 Cash !

Man-finds-bag-full-of-$100000-notes-in-Burger-KingThis is a True incident that happened in the South Bay area, San Jose, USA

A bag loaded with about $100,000 was found inside a Burger King.

The assistant manager was the first one to spot the blue backpack, abandoned in a booth at the Burger King on North Bascom Avenue in San Jose.

“I twice cleaned, like two or three times cleaned the tables and it’s still here,” said Sahista Bakawla, assistant manager of the Burger King. “I waited until 3 p.m. and nobody came here.”

She took it to the back and called the owner. He opened it, hoping to find some ID or a phone number.

“I open the zipper, and I see lots of money, cash money, $100 bills stack up like half the bag, money,” Burger King owner Altaf Chaus said. “I said, ‘Wow! Today’s my birthday, this is my birthday gift.'”

It was a fleeting thought. He immediately called police.

“I’ve been in this country 26 years and I worked two jobs for 15 years before I bought this Burger King,” Chaus said. “So I’m a very hard working man. I don’t want that money, maybe it belongs to somebody.”

Officers came to the restaurant and opened the bag. Along with the money, they found bank deposit slip and other stuff.

Police are now working with the bank to find the bag’s owner.

A customer is shocked about the money and so moved by the story, she stopped to thank the assistant manager for her honesty.

“I would have done the same thing but to know that someone else did it, really makes me feel good,” Mary Teixeira said.

And just in time for the holidays.

Police looked for the individual who forgot the bag in the restaurant. Don’t know if they found him or not and don’t know who got to keep the money. 😉

    Masha-Allah! Lets pray for both the Assistant Manager and the Owner who did the most righteous thing.
    If the bag owner is not found, half the money should go to the finder and the other half to charity in the bag owner’s name.
    However, I wonder why did not the bag owner return soon enough lookiung for this tremendous wealth.

      Yeah, you are right. Rather than police keeping the money, I also think that the money should be given to the honest employee and the employer.
      And really no idea why the bag owner didn’t return.

    They’ll work hard to find the owner since it’s the US police. If it were here in Nigeria, the money will either be lost in the hands of the police, or an officer will connive with someone to claim the money, or if the real owner is found, he’ll have to “reward” the police with large amount.
    May Allah guide us and may He reward both employee and owner.

      Yeah Ahmad. Indeed Nigerian drama is highly organized.
