A Filipina has gained the respect of Dubai Police for her honesty in returning a huge sum of cash worth Dh195,000 that was left in a bag at the coffee shop where she works.

Mae Anne Olmidillo, a barista, was feted by Bur Dubai Police Station Acting Director Colonel Rashid Mohammed Saleh Al Shehhi.

The police officer said that Olmidillo’s good deed forms part of their “We Reach You to Thank You” initiative.

The 27-year-old woman also extended her words of gratitude to the Dubai Police General HQ for acknowledging her efforts.

She said the recognition gave her pride and joy.

“Hindi po ako nagdalawang isip na ibalik yung pera sa nagma-may-ari. Hindi po akin yun at alam kong may return si God para sa akin. Maraming salamat po,” said Olmidillo.

Apart from the cash, the bag that was found by the Filipina also happened to contain two signed cheques – one worth Dh 500,000 and another worth Dh 6,250, a chequebook, private paperworks, and other documents.
