A 25-year-old Syrian refugee living in Minden, Germany has been hailed as a “hero” for turning €150,000 to authorities.

The Syrian man found the money in a cupboard that had been given to him by a charitable organization. After discovering that the huge amount, which was hidden in the cupboard, was actually real money, he reported the discovery to police.

“This young man has behaved in an exemplary manner and deserves great credit. People often report small amounts of money found to the police, but such a large sum is absolutely exceptional,” said the police in a statement published online.

The Syrian arrived in Germany in October 2015 as a refugee and is currently living in Minden where he is learning German and is hoping to enroll in further education.
