Bay Area couple returns $11,000 they found on Golden Gate Bridge

VALLEJO — What would you do if you found a camera bag with more than $11,000 in cash?

That's the dilemma Barbara and Carlos Landeros faced during a Valentine's Day trip to the Golden Gate Bridge.

The Vallejo couple found the bag at a vista point north of the bridge. It contained an envelope filled with $100 bills, several credit cards, a camera and lens and a wallet with Chinese currency but no photo ID.

The Vallejo Times-Herald (http://bit.ly/YSw9qX ) reports the couple waited an hour and a half for the owner to return before they dropped off the bag at the San Francisco police department. Officers tracked down the owner using airline ticket information inside the bag.

The owner rented a van and drove to the Landeros' home to thank them.
