Imagine driving down the highway when all of a sudden, you see thousands of dollars scattered all over the road. Let's be real here.. most of us would slam on the brakes and start grabbing all the green we could find.
That's exactly what happened out in Indiana when the back door of an armored Brinks truck flew right open while the vehicle was cruising down an interstate. According to WTTV, police initially estimated that hundreds of thousands of dollars were dropped, but later stated they don't have an exact number.
Drivers pulled over, ran back onto the road, and promptly began grabbing cash or as I like to call it "assisting with the cleanup effort." Unfortunately collecting any of the cash is technically considered theft, which is why authorities politely asked anyone who grabbed some to turn it back in with the promise of amnesty.
Scott's take: Who wouldn't want to grab cash that's just sitting there?! While I can relate to the urge, it's ridiculously dangerous to just walk onto an active highway no matter what the reason. The cash that was grabbed it considered stolen and considering passerby reported the license plates of some of those who stopped, I'd turn that cash back in. Never said I wouldn't cry while giving all those beautiful bills back though!
