LAS VEGAS, NV -- A big surprise for a Las Vegas cab driver when he looked inside a bag left in the back of his taxi this week.

He found $300,000 in dollars cash!

Rather than pocket a really big pay-day, he called his company and turned over the money. The owner later showed up, looking for the money.

"My dignity is not for sale, and that's the way I am,” said the driver, Gerardo Gamboa.

“That's the way our parents taught us when I was a kid: if it does not belong to you, don't take it."

The cab company honored the Good Samaritan by naming him "driver of the year" and giving him a $1000 reward.
