Frantic drivers dash from cars to grab spilled cash off highway

Frantic drivers dash from cars to grab spilled cash off highway

Atlanta residents who were cruising along the I-285 on Tuesday night got more than they bargained for when a truck spilled open and dolla dolla bills began to rain down on the interstate.

The incident happened around 8 p.m. on the westbound lanes of I-285 near the Ashford Dunwoody Road interchange in DeKalb County.

Officials were still urging greedy drivers on Wednesday to stop blocking the roadway as "THERE IS NO MORE MONEY!" police said in another post.

Georgia cops were pleasantly surprised when several Good Samaritans turned in thousands of dollars that spilled out onto a highway earlier this week after the side door of an armored truck suddenly opened. Investigators will be trying to locate them from their tag numbers seen in the video. "Officers and the truck crew gathered a few hundred dollars that was still there when officers arrived, but plenty was taken", the Dunwoody Police Department said. "My instinct was to pull over and collect as much as I can", said Lewis. The first thing I did was I pulled over and started picking up some money.

Lewis, who did not return messages requesting comment, proudly shared the police department's photo of him returning the money on his Facebook page.

At least two people have already returned some of the bills. "While we certainly understand the temptation, it's still theft and the money should be returned", says the post.

Dunwoody Police warned people, keeping the money is against the law.

While it might have looked like free money for the taking, authorities are asking motorists to return any cash they grabbed.

"They were going into the woods, jumping over the walls, doing everything they can to find the money", Parsons said with a chuckle, adding there wasn't any left.
