THEY could have spent it all on a shopping spree or a luxury holiday – after all, many of us would.
But when a British couple found a rucksack carrying a tempting €3,800 in €50 notes, they did the honest thing and handed it straight to police.
The pair were holidaying in Manilva with their children when they came across the lost bag, which also contained bank statements and other documents.
“They didn’t leave their names. They just handed the bag in and left,” said a spokesman at Manilva police station.
The police were later able to track down the rucksack’s rather careless owner to Sabinillas.
