Cordillera - The Tublay Municipal Police Station commended an honest farmer in their municipality for returning a sling bag he found containing large amount of cash. 

Tublay farmer Mr. Mando B. Alonzo brought to the police station the said sling bag which contains Php133,800.75. 

According to Alonzo, he found the sling bag while passing through Sitio Sayatan, Bayaan Road in Tublay, Benguet. 

Alonzo said he was surprised to discover that it contained a large amount of cash. He also found IDs and a cellphone number whom he contacted and agreed to meet with the owner at the police station for the turning over of the bag. 

Mr. Alonzo and the owner Mr. Roger Santiago, 29 years old, resident of Poblacion, Bauko, Mt. Province met at the Police Station where the later showed proof of identity under PMSg Ronald Neil Bagta. 

Mr. Santiago claimed the bag and thanked Mr. Alonzo for his honesty and kindness.

The honesty of Mr. Alonzo is a testament to the Cordilleran culture of "Inayan" which prohibits anyone from consuming or taking anything that he/she does not own. 

Despite his family's recent financial struggle, he didn't hesitate to do what is right. He might have earnestly prayed  for grace just when his wife was discharged from BeGh and signed a promissory note to pay an amount of P37,000. His wife just had a gall bladder surgery then.  However, he was wise enough to discern what's right and acted right.

Amidst the crisis that this current pandemic has brought to farmers, Mr. Alonzo did not hesitate to return the bag he found by contacting the owner and reporting it to the Police, then later turned it over to the rightful owner. 

Let this simple act of honesty and kindness become an inspiration and encouragement to everyone amidst the hardship and struggles we face in this difficult times.
