Cordillera. Honesty is doing the right thing although no one else knows or is watching and it is a human core value that needs to be emulated by all. 

Recently, an honest police officer in Baguio City returned a bag containing cash worth Php20,000.00, credit cards, passbook, passport, car spare key and driver's license to the owner. 

The owner of the bag Mr. Wilfredo Gatchalian shared in social media the good deed of Police Officer Buhong who returned his bag after losing it on December last year. 

In his Facebook post, Gatchalian said he was not expecting that his lost bag will be returned to him. However, he was very thankful that a police officer returned his bag.

"Nanlulumo na nga po ako tapos bigla may nagchat sa akin napulot daw bag ko. Hindi ko nga inexpect na mabalik pa eh. Napakabait pulis doon, Strick pero mabait," he said.

He tried to give a reward to P.Lt Buhong as an expression of gratitude for his good deed but the police officer refused to accept it. 

"Sana lahat ng police ganito. Binibigyan ko si sir ng reward pero ayaw pa niya tanggapin. Labis labis ang pasasalamat ko sa iyo at sampu ng mga kasama mo sa station 3 ng Baguio City. Nawa'y marami ka pang matutulongan na nangangailangan," Gatchalian added.

Many netizens who read the post had expressed their admiration to P.Lt Buhong.

"Wow, that's something worth emulating! Congratulations PO Buhong. Another feather on the cap of PNP Cordillerans," one netizen wrote. 

According to a post, P,Lt Buhong is from Bili, Amduntong, Ifugao. 

Stories of honesty such as this is definitely worth emulating. We hope that the good deed of P.Lt Buhong will inspire not only police officers and taxi drivers but all of us. 



  1. Good job sir, sir Bujong, God will give your reward soon
