A MUNICIPAL worker on the Costa del Sol has handed in a wallet containing €950 while on his shift in.
Victor Leche Poveda, who works in Almuñécar’s Parque El Majuelo, is now being honoured by the council for his good-deed and will receive an exemplary behaviour note on his work record.
Mr Leche Poveda, who found the wallet, which also contained credit cards, in a planter in the botanical-archaeological park, has been in charge of El Majuelo for 14 years, and working for the council since 1980.
He commented, “I found the wallet and took it to the Local Police in case its owner claimed it. It is not the first time that I have found valuable items, although it is the first wallet that had €950 in notes in it, but I find mobile phones and cameras all the time.”
