CROWN HEIGHTS - A Brooklyn cab driver received a $1,000 reward for returning nearly $100,000 worth of jewelry left in the back of his cab.

Driver Zubiru Jalloh says he noticed a white tote bag in the back of his cab after making his last drop off of the night on Sunday.

Jalloh says he only looked through it to find a phone number to call and return the bag, but found thousands of dollars worth of cash and jewelry inside. Instead of keeping the valuables, Jalloh says he contacted the owner and returned it.

He says his faith and religion inspired him to do the right thing.
