Some of $175,000 returned after money melee on I-285

Drivers following this armored truck got lucky when it spilled cash on the highway Tuesday

An armored truck's door sprang open on Interstate 285 on the north side of Atlanta on Tuesday night, spilling cash across the highway.

"Last night around 8:00 PM, Dunwoody officers responded to the area of I-285 west and Ashford Dunwoody Road regarding money flying all over the road", the Dunwoody Police Department said in a Facebook post. In a recent Facebook post Wednesday, Dunwoody Police asked the public to stop parking alongside the interstate to look for more money.

According to CNN, police estimate that almost $1,75,000 was spilled out when the truck's side door sprung open.

People across the country are always asking for money to be thrown at their rough roads and crumbling infrastructure, but this is certainly not what they had in mind.

"If you bring the money into Dunwoody Police Department, 24/7, and turn it in, that's it", Sgt. Parsons said according to AJC.com.

"I've seen it in the movies", he said. "This is the first one I can think of.".

Amazon says it is investing over $700M to upskill 100,000 employees
Amazon said there are now more job openings - 7.4 million - than there are unemployed Americans - 6 million - citing the U.S. The idea is to help Amazon employees progress into more advanced jobs or even new positions outside of the company.

It's a crime for those who took the cash to keep it. Police are checking social media video to find the drivers with sticky fingers. "The money needs to be returned to the owner".

Judging from footage taken at the scene, it seems most people decided the right thing to do was to get out of their cars and make hay while the sun shined, in some kind of freakish motorway-based version of The Crystal Maze.

Speaking to CNN, he said: "It took me a minute to realise it wasn't leaves".

"If the money is turned in, we will not criminally charge those who do the right thing", Sergeant Parsons said.

Dunwoody Police warned people, keeping the money is against the law.

Authorities say that around 15 drivers pulled off the interstate to try to collect the spilled cash.
