"It wasn't mine," said Walter Fernandez, who found the expensive contents in a bag belonging to Miki Cooper after he delivered her and her pet Shih Tzu, Tatiana, to The Ritz-Carlton, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Tuesday.
Cooper's black bag contained the Rolex, an iPod, three diamond rings and a pair of one-carat diamond stud earrings, said Cooper, who frantically called all area cab companies Saturday searching for a driver named "Walter."
Meantime, Fernandez, 64, a native of Uruguay, had called the Ritz about the bag and was able to meet up with Cooper, who hugged him, kissed him and gave him $200 as a reward.
"She was contentissima," Fernandez said. "Very happy."
