Armagh woman’s gratitude after purse with cash and personal items handed into police

Go Filling Station Richhill

A grateful Armagh woman is attempting to reach out to the good Samaritan who handed in an expensive purse containing cash and personal items to police.

The woman – who wished not to be named – was travelling to work in Belfast when she misplaced her purse.

It was around 6.30am when she pulled her car into the GO filling station on the Portadown Road in Richhill.

After filling her tank she drove off leaving her purse behind.

It wasn’t until 7.30am – approximately an hour later – when she received a call from the police to say the purse had been handed in, before she even knew it had gone missing.

Shocked, but delighted, by the person’s honesty the owner reached out to Armagh I in a bid to track down the person responsible for such an honest act of kindness.

“There was a lot of cash, a cash card, some vouchers and it was an expensive purse,” she explained. “I got the call from the police station to say someone has handed it in with everything in it.

“I cannot believe how honest and kind someone has been. I would love if you could help me find them as the police didn’t get their details. I would just love to thank the person because it wan’t about the money; the purse was a birthday gift from my sons.”
