Lost wallet ‘Good Samaritan’ found

First published in News

LAST week we ran a story about a mystery ‘Good Samaritan’ who brought back a wallet lost at the side of the road.

Now the honest stranger has been revealed as Glyn Jenkins, 46, from Barry, after a reader recognised the story and got in touch with his contact details.

Argus reporter Jen Mills, 26, lost the wallet in Newport on June 11.

But thanks to Mr Jenkins, the wallet was returned with all the cash and cards inside.

From the address on her driving license he brought it to her Dewsland Park Road address, but Ms Mills was not at home.

Mr Jenkins said: “It’s a bit sad that a person who does the right thing makes the news – it wasn’t a big deal; I was just in the area.”

Ms Mills said: “I’m very grateful to Glyn – and I’ll definitely try to return any lost wallets to pass on the good deed debt.”

Quite rite!

You see what I mean. He just wanted to be left alone.
My original message from Fri 20 Jun 14:
"I am sure they realised you would be grateful, the fact they didn't leave a contact no, means they didn't need any recognition and it could be embarrassing for them to receive any publicity........"

"You see, every day round the world, acts of kindness are carried out without a second thought .
Some people don't need them to be acknowledged.

The truth is that almost every "lost" item gets found by someone. The problem is getting it back to the owner. If the finder is not able to easily figure out who it belongs to it won't get returned. This is why putting tracker tags from mystufflostandfound.
