A group of teenagers in La Habra found an envelope stuffed with $800 in cash Friday.

Keeping the money did cross their minds until they saw the deposit slip.

"The name was a female, so we're like 'OK, what if this is a mother struggling, worked hard for this?' And 'What if we take this all the way and then they go days without food only because of this?'" said Gerardo Marquez III, 18.

The rightful owner had not yet been located Monday.

If you have information related to the money, contact the La Habra Police Dept. at (562) 905-9777.
