Hyung flagged down the taxi in Malate, Manila at about 6am when she asked the driver to take her to Valenzuela City.
The student fell asleep in the vehicle and awoke to find her phone and cards missing, prompting her to confront the driver.
It was this confrontation that caught the attention of the police officer. After an inspection of the vehicle the iPhone was found between the driver and passenger’s seat and the ATM cards were discovered in the sun visor of the taxi.
Police have filed theft charges against the driver.
