Business owner gets lucky after losing cash

| 09/01/2020 | 19 Comments

(CNS): The owner of a Camana Bay-based business had a very lucky break this week after their lost container full of cash was handed into the police by a good Samaritan. At around 5:45pm on Tuesday, 7 January, a member of the public who had found what was described as a significant amount of local cash in various denominations handed it in to the George Town Police Station. Police then managed to identify and track down the rightful owner, who had lost the money on the way to the bank.

“The RCIPS would like to thank the reporting party for making such an honest decision to turn over the cash in hopes that the owner could be found. Your integrity is commendable,” the police stated in a short release about the incident.

    Kudos! It should be instinct to turn in something like this!

      I truly hope the business owner is gracious enough to reward that honest person with a nice size amount of cash to show gratitude and common sense approach to this person who DID NOT HAVE TO DO IT BUT HE OR SHE “DID”

    With the amount of cameras in operation at Camana Bay it would have been only a matter of time before they tracked him down, not turning it in could have led to him being arrested under suspicion of Theft by Finding. In the event that even a single dollar was missing, he could have been charged.

    Good Samaritan or not it was the logical thing to do.

    It was an expat that turned the money in.

    Once again, an example of good things happening in the Cayman Islands.

    I just hope the ‘good Samaritan’ will be given a public thank you by the business owner as a gesture of continued goodness in the Cayman Islands.

      His is fine with remaining anonymous.

      In the good old days when Cayman was “the Islands that time forgot” this was the norm instead of an exception. Remember when we could leave windows and doors opened day and night – when keys could be left in cars,? Outboard motors left attached to boats, no thieves and no beggars. That was utopia!!

    This was the norm of the Caymanian Community. Just a few years ago while shopping at Fosters at Country side I found in the shopping cart a days deposit from a gas station. I opened it to find a check which led me to the gas station and owner. I left it with the Manager but called the owners wife before leaving the supermarket. I will repeat what one of our very good ole Caymanian Citizens said while driving a Tourist on the seven mile road “This is the way we do it around here”. Just a normal deed for us.

    This helps restore my faith in our community. They didn’t say, and I don’t think it matters, the nationality of the person turning the money in. I am so glad to read this story. :up:
