Could you seriously imagine rolling down I25 and suddenly money is flying through the air. Not just a few bills, but THOUSANDS of $20 bills?! Wow!
That’s exactly what happened on an Indiana highway Wednesday morning. At this time, it’s not clear as to what caused the back doors of the armored truck to break free. Troopers initially estimated the loss of cash to be $600,000, but as of recent the amount is unclear.
Unfortunately, the old ‘finders keepers, losers weepers’ doesn’t apply to cash flying out of the back of an armed truck. In fact, anyone who took any of that cash as it was flying off to the side of the road could be facing criminal charges unless they return it.
An armored truck spilled thousands of $20 bills along an Indiana highway Wednesday morning, prompting motorists to pull over and attempt to score some free scratch. "Bags of money were falling out of the back onto the interstate," Indiana State Police Cpl. Brock McCooe told local FOX affiliate WXIN. "Sort of something out of a movie scene, where you have...loose bills flying all over the interstate, vehicles stopping, people getting out of their cars." While troopers initially estimated that $600,000 was lost in the incident, they later said the amount was unclear. It was also reportedly unclear what caused the back doors of the Brinks truck to burst open, but one thing's for sure: Making off with that money is a crime, and authorities are reportedly scanning video footage for the license plates of those who took some dough. "If you’re willing to, in good conscience, turn it back in, there’s amnesty," McCooe added. "There’s no real questions asked if you’re willing to give it back."
