United States: Thousands of dollars escape on highway after van opens, motorists take advantage

This Friday, November 19, dollar bills fell from the sky “thanks” to an armored van which was on a Californian highway and whose door opened. In front of this treasure, motorists did not resist the temptation and rushed towards the scattered bundles to pick them up.

But unfortunately for the drivers, the fun only lasted a moment since the police quickly intervened on the spot to restore order. She also arrested two people who were a little too greedy.

Indeed, although the banknotes flew out of the truck, they nevertheless remain the property of the bank. This is why California Freeway Police Sgt. Curtis Martin insisted that everyone still in possession of the recovered money turn it over to a police station.

Tickets must be returned

During the press conference, he also specified “that there are many videos showing people stealing money on the highway by picking it up on the ground”. He thus warned that the police intended to use these videos to find the trace of those who would not have the intention of bringing back the money unduly collected.

“It is better that they play the card of honesty rather than wait until one finds them and that one knocks on their door”, he warns.

Present on the scene, the American athlete Demi Bagby, also shared a video via his Instagram account. “Have you seen this before?” what would you do? ” she launched to her more than two and a half million subscribers.

On social networks, several sequences of the surrealist event were relayed. They show people stopping on tracks and emergency lanes, before rushing to retrieve greenbacks by handfuls. The jackpot is so big that some even have fun throwing them in the air like confetti.
