Kanya Suksamkaew, 60, had taken the money out of the bank on Tuesday morning with the intention of using it to buy items for merit making, reported Thairath.

But she left it in the taxi at a gas station near Central Pin Klao in eastern Bangkok.

Driver Pitthaya Paocharoen noticed a bag on the back seat a few moments later and saw it was full of 1000 baht notes.

So he returned to the gas station but the passenger was nowhere to be found.

Then he took the bag to Samranrat police station where the owner was later reunited with her valuable bag.

Kanya said that she held out virtually no hope of getting the bag back while Pitthaya said that it was all in a day’s work.

She gave him 4,000 baht as a reward while police at the station said they would prepare a shield to present to the driver to celebrate his fine act of honesty.
