Cabbie returns 31 diamond rings to passenger

A taxi driver returned a black bag carrying 31 diamond rings to a passenger who earlier had given him a 30-cent tip on an $11 ride.

Hours after Osman Chowdhury dropped off the passenger, he tracked her down through a flurry of phone calls and returned the bag, which she had left in the taxi’s trunk.

The unidentified woman, who said she was a jeweler, offered a $100 reward.

Chowdhury accepted the money to cover the fares he lost while tracking her down.

Chowdhury, a native of Bangladesh, told the New York Daily News that he didn’t so much as consider keeping the gems.
