Aviation police officer at Tacloban airport returns P200,000 cash to owner
It's something unusual for a police officer, especially an aviation officer from Tacloban Airport, to be returning P200,000 cash.
Because of this honesty, Chief Master Sgt. Julie Antor was praised by Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines Director General Jim Sydiongco, who called it an admirable act.
Antor is a member of PNP Aviation Security at the Daniel Z. Romualdez Airport or the Tacloban City Airport.
A member of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Aviation Security Unit (AVSEU) was commended by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) after the police officer found a bag stuffed with cash at the Daniel Z. Romualdez Airport also known as Tacloban City Airport.
The bag and other electronic items found by Antor were subjected to rigid inspection by the PNP Explosive Division before the airport authorities contacted the owner.
It added that the bag which was left behind outside the terminal's arrival area on May 7, 2022 was owned by Roderick R. Codog, a passenger who just arrived from Manila.
The Tacloban Airport, located in a highly urbanized city in Leyte, is operated by the CAAP.
"The event was an admirable act and is the result of coordination and a good working environment that promotes honesty. I believe both the PNP AVSEGROUP and CAAP will continue to work towards making our airports a safe and trustworthy space," Sydiongco said.
The honesty of Antor assigned at the Tacloban Airport was discussed during Sydiongco's meeting with the new AVSEGROUP director Police Brigadier General Andre P. Dizon.
