cab_driver_turns_in_300K-KVVULas Vegas cab driver Gerardo Gamboa found $300,000 of someone’s poker winnings left in a paper bag in his taxi Monday, but made sure every penny was returned to the rightful owner.

 

I don’t care from $10 to higher. My dignity is not for sale, and that’s the way I am,”that’s the way our parents taught us when I was a kid,” Gamboa told CNN affiliate KVVU.  ”All I wanted to do was just call my dispatcher and return it, and this is the only chance I have to show cab drivers in Las Vegas are not bad people.”

“I did the right thing, that’s it,” “They call us sin city. But it’s not. It’s angel city.”

 

Now, Gamboa is winning honors for honesty with his company naming him Driver of the Year and rewarded him with $1,000 and a dinner for two at a restaurant.
