Fast thinking by the assistant manager of Pattaya’s B-Quick tire shop may have saved a customer a financial headache.
Niyom Saesamrong, 33, turned in to police on June 14 a woman’s wallet he found containing the equivalent of more than 30,000 baht in Thai, South Korean and Japanese currency.
Niyom said he was walking through his shop when he spotted the wallet and opened it to find 24,600 baht, 190,000 won and 20 yen, along with important documents.
The assistant manager said he put the wallet in a safe place, waiting for the woman he presumed was a customer to return. When she didn’t after 24 hours, he went to police.
Authorities are now trying to locate the owner, who is presumed to be Korean.
