A worker at a filling station in Ca Mau Province, southern Vietnam returned a gold ring weighing about one tael he found while cleaning the venue to its owner as witnessed by local police, a local official said on Sunday. 

Tran Duy Kha, the worker in question, reported to the local police in Cai Nuoc District after he had discovered the 24K gold ring, which was later found to belong to Quach Thi Ngoan, living in the same district.

Ngoan had bought petrol at Kha’s filling station on October 13 and only realized that she lost the ring, weighing about one tael (37.5 grams), upon arriving home.

One tael of 24K gold was selling for VND52.3 million (US$2,148) on Monday morning in Vietnam. 

After Kha’s report, the Cai Nuoc police quickly investigated and determined Ngoan as the owner of the gold ring and carried out a handover.

Nearly a month ago, Nguyen Hien Phong, a taxi driver living in the same district, returned a lost cash amount of $4,000 to an overseas Vietnamese and was awarded a certificate of merit by the People’s Committee of Ca Mau Province for his good deed.
