Drivers Grab at $175,000 That Fell Off Armored Truck on Atlanta Interstate

The Dunwoody Police Department commends Randrell Lewis center for returning $2,100 that fell out of an armored truck

"The armored vehicle crew said the side door came open while they were driving and money spilled out onto 285", Dunwoody Police said in a statement.

WSB Radio reports that the rain of cash prompted a dozen or more drivers to pull over on I-285 near Ashford-Dunwoody Road.

Upon speaking to the crew of an armored auto that was parked on the interstate's shoulder, police said they learned that the cash fell out when the vehicle's side door opened during transport.

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.

Dunwoody Police said there were no crashes or injuries as a result of the windfall, and authorities were able to recover a few hundred dollars at the scene.

"The news said that it's theft, it's stealing, it's a crime and you must turn it [in] so I have to", he told 11 Alive. "Everybody started pulling over and it was insane".

Meanwhile, videos circulating on social media show the frenzy caused by the spilled cash.

The Uber Eats driver said he didn't spend a cent/penny of his haul. "We understand it was a weird occurrence, but do the right thing and return the money". "We understand it was a weird occurrence, but do the right thing and return the money", the post added.

"People likely saw the police lights coming over the highway", Parsons said.

The police are now urging people who grabbed the money in the "cash storm" to return it.

There were no reported accidents Tuesday night, but Dunwoody police warned commuters who were stopping on Wednesday to scour the road for money that "THERE IS NO MORE MONEY!"

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