Man Returns Thousands Of Dollars

A Taiwanese motorcyclist turned over three vinyl bags containing about $235,000 dollars after the bags fell from an armored car Sunday in downtown Taiwan.

The good samaritan, who works as a volunteer firefighter, said he wasn't tempted to keep the money because it wasn't his. Under Taiwanese law, he is eligible for a reward of up to 30-percent of the value of the money he returned.

The company that owns the armored car said the bags of cash fell to the street because of a malfunctioning door lock in one of its cars. Such a malfunction should have triggered an automatic warning system, but the warning system apparently malfunctioned and an investigation has been launched.
