Carangui and Terrelonge both did a sweep and managed to find that envelope with all the cash inside. Heather O'Rourke has the story.

FAR ROCKAWAY, Queens (WABC) -- This week we have a double dose of MTA Heroes.

Alvaro Carangui, a bus operator at the Far Rockaway Bus Depot, was heading back to the depot after finishing his last stop.

Before he arrived, his supervisor, Brenon Terrelonge, received a call saying that someone had left an envelope filled with over $8,000 on the bus.

Carangui and Terrelonge both did a sweep and managed to find that envelope with all the cash inside.

The money was returned to its rightful owner. The duo is a pair of MTA Heroes indeed.
