Armored truck loses $175K on highway

Atlanta - "An armored truck’s side door flew open while it was going down an Atlanta interstate on Tuesday night, spilling hundreds of thousands of dollars out onto the roadway — and making it the best day ever for passing drivers.

Footage posted on social media shows drivers stopping in their tracks and getting out of their vehicles to grab the cash. Authorities believe an estimated $175,000 wound up flying out.
911 callers said that 15+ vehicles had stopped and people were frantically taking the money,” cops explained in a statement Wednesday. “Officers and the truck crew gathered a few hundred dollars that was still there when officers arrived, but plenty was taken by passerby’s sticky fingers. The exact amount is currently unknown.”

While it may have seen like a good idea at the time, those who picked up cash and kept it for themselves could face theft charges of lost or mislaid property — a felony or misdemeanor, depending on the amount they scooped up."
