A lucky New Bedford woman is getting her Social Security money back after all. 

The woman had last Friday mistakenly left the cash in an envelope on the counter of a local conveinence store. 

Store surveillance video showed that a heavy-set man came up to the counter, and stuffed the envelope into his pocket and then walked away. 

Det. Capt. Steve Vicente tells WBSM News, someone dropped off the money Wednesday at a local attorney's office.  

The attorney immediately contacted Police, and the $781in cash was returned to the victim. 

Police, meantime are trying to locate the person who dropped off the money.
