 Jan 10 - Airport cleaner turns in lost iPad with $13,000 in case, gives away reward
topic by DNa BRoWN - 01-10-2013, 10:06 AM


A cleaning service worker at a Florida airport found an iPad – with $13,000 stuffed in its case – and turned it in. He then gave away the small reward he got from the owner to two people in need.
But that honesty and kindness paid off for Patrick Morgan, who was honored in a recognition ceremony Wednesday, NBCMiami.com reported.
Back in December, Morgan had spotted the lost iPad and hefty sum of cash when he was working an early shift at Florida's Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
"I opened it first, and I saw all the money, and I quickly closed it back up," said Morgan, of Patrick's Cleaning Service.
Just minutes after Morgan alerted authorities about his discovery, the panicked iPad owner returned and gave Morgan $60 as a reward. Morgan then gave away some of the $60 to a homeless woman at the airport and the rest to a struggling cleaning employee.

To honor that honesty, the Broward County Aviation Department in Florida presented Morgan with a gift and plaque on Wednesday. His employer, Sunshine Cleaning Systems, also gave him $625, equivalent to a week of paid vacation, according to NBCMiami.com. This time, he said he'll keep the money, NBCMiami.com reported.
"Patrick is such an outstanding and honest person," Larry Calufetti, president of Sunshine Cleaning Systems, said in a statement. "What he did speaks volumes about his personality."
Morgan was reportedly brought to tears during Wednesday's ceremony: "It’s just a good feeling to know that I returned it and that's the bottom line. I wasn't looking for anything."
NBCMiami.com's Julia Bagg contributed to this story.

....$60 bucks?....thats a damn shame....but if you're carrying anything over $10,000 on a plane you probably have to declare it with TSA or Custom Border Patrol...the service worker may have gotten caught up if he tried to keep it

this. youre at work, theyre going to suspect that somebody at the job took that #### from the rip, its not like you just a random person whos going bounce and not be found

13k sounds good on face value, until you lose your job and get arrested

He had to know the cameras were on him. There's no way I would have tried to take that.

####ed up that they only gave him $60. Maybe $600 would be decent for saving ur a$s.

that happened in ft lauderdale airport in south Florida..but i think he return it because you know they got cameras in the airport and he runs the cleaning service so come on 13k or mess up your contract and future clientele but 60 bucks i don't know i would maybe tell homie i just found the ipad lol..truth be told its hard to give up 13k and dude just returned from Vegas who lost the money.
