Brno, Nov 21 (BD) – After lunch and some shopping, a 55-year-old foreign national went to the car park of a shopping center in Královo Pole, put his shopping in the car, and started driving away. After few moments, he realized that he had forgotten something – his bag, containing almost a half a million CZK. When the man got back, the bag was gone. He reported it missing to the police and set off home.
“At this moment his phone rang, and a male voice claimed that he had found his bag with documents and the money,” said Petra Hrůzová, a spokeswoman for the South Moravian Police. The men then met at a local police station, where the lucky man thanked the finder and gave him a financial reward.
