Suvarnabhumi security guard found abandoned suitcase full of cash

We usually hear stories about people forgetting a suitcase full of cash in a taxi, but this time someone just forgot stacks of cash right in the airport.

A security guard at Suvarnabhumi Airport found an abandoned suitcase containing cash in four different currencies that totaled THB1 million on Saturday.

A female security guard, Prayoon Thamphakdee, reported a suspicious suitcase left on a bench in a domestic baggage reclaim area. EOD officers were deployed to inspect the suitcase, but to their surprise, the suitcase was full of cash.

Inside the suitcase was 9,300 US dollars; 1,020 euros; 5,000 Russian rubles, and 20 Thai baht.

The officers also found a Russian passport and other documents. The name on the passport was not released.

For her honesty, Prayoon received a certificate from Suvarnabhumi Airport.

FM91, a lost and found center, will track down the owner of the suitcase.
