Police is on the search for four suspects in a white pickup truck that was towing a utility trailer, the reason being is that they got away with a bag full of cash that fell out of the Brinks truck on an Indiana highway.
Police urged the people to give back the money if they picked it up or they may face possible theft charges. The Brinks armored truck’s back door got swung open, which caused literally thousands of dollars to fell of the truck, to which many drivers on highway got off their vehicles to pick the bills up.
State police spokesperson said that according to the initial indications the exact amount of money lost is not exactly known which was lost in an incident on Interstate 70 on the city’s southwest side around 9am on Wednesday.
‘People were even jumping over fences from a nearby neighbourhood to pick up the cash,’ according to a Fox 59 report.
The troopers warned that whoever picked up money could be charged with theft and they must immediately return the cash to the police. Authorities specifically mentioned that they are looking for the school bus driver who picked up cash and got away from the scene.
The cause of the incident is still not known; it may be mechanical or human error.
The initial reports estimate the amount to be around $600,000.
The Brinks truck driver told that he was waved at by another driver who indicated that the cash was flowing out. The traffic was blocked by the officers to help pick up the money.
‘Bags of money were falling out of the back onto the interstate,’ said Indiana State Police Corporal Brock McCooe.
‘Sort of something out of a movie scene, where you have bills, loose bills flying all over the interstate, vehicles stopping, people getting out of their cars.’
