AMMAN: A Jordanian, who found a bank money bag containing nearly half a million dollars on the street in the northern city of Zarqa on Monday, called a local radio station for help in returning the cash. “Nayel Jamaan today found 320,000 dinars ($ 450,000) in Army Street in Zarqa that belonged to one of the banks,” the city’s police chief Hassan Thaher told state-run Petra news agency.
“He immediately contacted a local radio station to help him return the money. We have the money now and we are investigating.” Three bank courier staff had told police earlier that they lost “an amount of money” while on a delivery from a bank in Zarqa, Petra added.
There was no immediate word on whether Jamaan had received any reward for his honesty from either the bank or the courier.
