A Vallejo couple visiting San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge on Valentine's Day founded an unattended bag filled with lump of cash.

Carlos and Barbara Landeros on February 14 found a camera bag with $11,060, expensive camera equipment and credit cards, according to NBC Bay Area. Barbara spotted the camera bag once they pulled into Vista Point. The couple waited before heading to a police station and waited for hours until a Chinese tourist was located as the owner, using the credit cards.

"We wait about 45 minutes before we picked up the bag," said Barbara Landeros at her Vallejo home. "Because we didn't know who it belongs to."

"I got nervous at first, it could be drug money," she said. "I was scared."

The Chinese tourist, Mark was excited to receive the call from the police. Grateful owner shared to NBC that they are "very, very kind in heart." He had accidently left the bag in the lot while traveling with other families.

Mark went out of his way to thank the Landeroses, as he first tried to call but had the wrong number. Then drove to their Vallejo home, only to find out they weren't home. Finally he reached them by phone and thanked them. He said he put a check in the mail as a reward.
