Items in the suitcase included a Samsung smartphone, a Nokia phone, an iPhone 4, an iPhone 7, an iPad, a tablet, a Cazabella watch and bracelet, a Harrods handbag, two sealed envelopes, US$170, GBP1,800, and THB2,000, and two ATM cards.

According to Dang Ngoc Quat, captain of the train, after reviewing the train’s manifest, the crew identified Gillion Lesky Dicorato and his family, from the United Kingdom, as owners of the property.

The group had been traveling from the central city of Da Nang to Nha Trang earlier that day.

The assets were returned to their owners on Wednesday morning, Quat continued.
