Drivers in southern California have scrambled to pick up cash after bags of money fell out of an armoured vehicle on a motorway.
The incident happened on Friday morning at Carlsbad’s Interstate 5 as the vehicle was traveling from San Diego to a Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
” One of the doors opened and cash was flung out,” stated Sgt Curtis Martin, California Highway Patrol (CHP).
Several bags burst open, spreading mostly $1 and $20 bill across the roads and causing a chaos on the motorway, he stated.
Videos posted online showed people jumping up and laughing as they carried wads full of cash.
Two people were taken into custody on the spot. Martin stated that others could be charged with taking any money. Authorities didn’t immediately disclose how much money was lost.
He pointed out that witnesses had taken a lot of video, and that the FBI and CHP were investigating. He urged anyone who took money to bring it to the CHP offices in Vista.
At least 12 people had already done this by Friday afternoon, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
“People bring in a lot,” Martin stated. “People got a lot of money.”
