Indiana State Police are asking for people to return money that had flown out of the back of a Brinks Truck on I-70. It’s reported that at around 9am on I-70 the backdoors of the Brinks Security Truck has opened up causing hundreds of thousands of dollars to fall out of the back of the truck and onto the highway. People had pulled to the side of the highway, getting out of their cars and playing a dangerous game of Frogger in hopes of making a quick buck, this had caused not only a traffic jam but thousands of dollars to be stolen from the truck. Not only were people jumping out of their cars but close by residents were jumping the fences and running onto the highway, grabbing cash, and jumping back over the fence. Another driver had gotten the attention of the Brinks truck driver to let him know about the money falling out. It is currently unknown what had caused the doors to open and make the bags of money fall out but it is estimated that around $600,000 and fell out of the truck. Police are asking for people to return and give up the money they had grabbed, failure to do so will result in a warrant for theft for those who were seen by highway cameras grabbing the cash.
