An elderly person was seen roaming the streets in EDSA, Mandaluyong City.
According to a police report, patrolling officials spotted the old man gaining some rather unwanted attention by curious passersby in Barangay Barangka Ilaya around 5:30 in the afternoon.
Policemen saw in his possession around 300 pieces of dollar bills amounting to around P1.3 million as well as Philippine bills worth P276,000.
The old man explained to local authorities that he was about to take his money to a cockfighting event. However, some parts of his story seemed inconsistent.
He has now been handed over to a family member.
