Honest beggar rewarded

A Mexican beggar who found a bag of jewellery in a dustbin returned it to its rightful owners.

Alberto Gonzales, 48, found a bag containing five gold necklaces and four diamond rings in a bin in Mexico City.

He returned it to the people who live in the building to which the bin belonged, reports Las Ultimas Noticias.

It turned out that a man had hidden the jewellery in a plastic bag for safekeeping but did not tell his wife who threw it out.

The couple thanked Mr Gonzales and gave him an undisclosed amount of money as a reward.

Mr Gonzales said: “My parents taught me to be honest. I guess it paid off!”
