7/11 girl in Songkhla returns 91K and gold back to the owner
A girl working at a local 7/11 in Songkhla Province returned 91,100 THB, 1 baht gold chain (15.16 grams), and a 7.58 grams gold bracelet to the rightful owner. The girl found the money and gold left behind by the customer under the cashier counter in the front. Instead of keeping it for herself as many might do, she chose the right thing to do and returned it to the true owner.
The owner Wanna Aleh 56 years old and her family went to pick up the money and gold at Muang Kham Police Station in Singha Nakhon District, Songkhla Province on 29 August 2019. Wanna picked up 91,100 THB in cash, her gold necklace, and her gold chain that she forgot in a 7/11 located inside Muang Kham PTT Station on 20 August 2019. Together the cash and items are worth more than 100K THB.
Luckily, right when Wanna left the 7/11, the girl walked to the front of the cashier counter to rearrange items. This is when she found the cash and gold sitting together under the counter. If the girl didn’t walk to the front at the time, Wanna would probably come to the police station to file a report, not coming to pick up her valuables.
The security camera inside 7/1 showed Wanna walking in and exiting the store. When the police asked Wanna tell them exactly what it was that she forgot in the famous convenience store, Wanna could state accurately what was left at the counter, including what the gold necklace and bracelet looked like. Wanna was very happy to hear about the good news after realizing her big mistake.
Hopefully, this story will remind you to be aware of where you place your valuables, especially in public places and it is always best to return what is not yours to the true owner. Although it is unclear why Wanna was carrying that much cash and gold together into a 7/11 she was sure lucky to get it back so quick in full amount.
