Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The local cab driver who found $300,000 in cash inside a brown bag in his back seat, is being rewarded for his honesty.

The cabbie returned the cash, and has now been thanked in person by the professional poker player who left it there.

According to the Yellow-Checker-Star Cab Company, Gerardo Gamboa turned the money in to the cab company immediately after finding it.

They eventually found the owner and gave him the money back.

The poker player, who is still remaining anonymous, has given the cab driver $10,000 as a thank you.

The cab company had already named Gamboa their employee of the year, and awarded him another $1,000.
