Phuket taxi driver returns wallet to foreign tourist

Phuket –

A taxi driver in Phuket found a wallet in his taxi before returning it to a foreign owner.

Mr. Tom Sukkasem, the head of the taxi driver station at a taxi stall near Central Phuket, called the Phuket Tourist Police 1155 hotline late last week.

Tom told police that Mr. Kampanart Chaiyakarn, a taxi driver at the taxi stall, found a wallet inside his taxi which might belong to his latest foreign tourist customer.

The Phuket Tourist Police received the wallet before they identified the owner. The foreign tourist who stayed at a hotel in Patong was contacted to meet at the Phuket Tourist Police Station.

The foreign tourist was happy to receive his wallet. He checked his wallet and said everything was still intact. He said thank you to the taxi driver and the Phuket Tourism police for the good deed. The name and nationality of the tourist was not released, although he posed for photos as seen.
