A man was devastated after losing his expensive cell phone at an airport.

Lin, a businessman, said that he lost the luxury cell phone while he was on another phone taking care of business.

The cell phone, which is encrusted with gold and has over 800 diamonds, was valued at 680,000 yuan (about $110,000).

Lin was at an airport in Wenzhou, Zhejiang, China, on Saturday, when his phone went missing. He called the police to report the theft.

The officers reviewed surveillance video and realized that the phone was taken by a woman before she left the airport.

He offered to pay the police 10,000 yuan for the safe return of the phone, but the money has been rejected as police officers are not allowed to take bribes.

Police located the woman in a nearby village, and found the phone in her possession. The phone was returned to its grateful owner.
