YESSENTUKI, November 13. /TASS/. Two traffic police officers had to chase the car of an absent-minded driver throughout the village of Levokumovskoye in the Russian southern Stavropol region to return his wallet stuffed with 100,000 rubles ($1,500), the regional police said on Friday.
Driving through the village, the man stopped near a traffic police post to ask the way. When he drove off, the police officers found a wallet on the asphalt and took up the chase but managed to overtake his car at the exit of the village where the man was reunited with his wallet and the money.
"The man said that he had not even noticed the loss of 100,000 rubles," the police press service said.
The resident of the city of Stavropol praised the police officers for "their professionalism and civic responsibility."
