OOOPS!!
Quote this message in a reply
I've been away from the forum for a few days dealing with the wife's medical issues down at Duke Med in Raleigh/Durham NC. This little incident happened while I was in the area but I missed all the action. Looks like a lot of money---if it was a true "brick",  I think it means $10,000 flying around. Surprised there were no wrecks.








Raleigh, N.C. — Some drivers on Interstate 40 made a quick buck Thursday morning when the door of an armored truck opened and cash fell out.  
Police said a Loomis armored truck was traveling east on I-40 near U.S. 1 at about 8 a.m. when its back door inadvertently opened as an employee inside the truck was trying to better secure it.  
A “brick” of money fell from the open door and an undisclosed number of $20 bills were scattered when it hit the pavement, authorities said.  
Police said all vehicles in the area stopped and most of the money was gone by time officers arrived on the scene.  
“I was driving down I-40 and there’s all this money, cash, spread out on the highway and people are getting out of their cars and picking up this money. It’s this bizarre view. It looks like something out of a movie,” said one driver in a 911 call.  
No wrecks or injuries were reported in conjunction with the stopped vehicles or the cleanup.  
Police said some people contacted Loomis and returned money recovered at the scene. Anybody else wishing to do so can call 919-469-5992 or return it to the company’s facility at 125 Nova Drive in Morrisville.

Do you suppose they catalog all of the serial numbers of the bills they pack into a "brick"? Of course just letting people think they did might make a few more of the people return the cash.
   What a dream though , you just stop and scoop up the cash....

The armored car company is insured, and they could handle a $10,000 loss quite easily. Unless there was surveillance cameras around, or eyewitnesses, I cannot see how the cops would ever find the people who took the money with the exception being the serial numbers, and one has to assume nobody will be stepping forward with the cash anytime soon Chuckle

More importantly, how does an armored truck's door inadvertently open when driving down the highway? It doesn't. Only two possibilities...

Employee error. Or the door was opened by someone so the money could "fall out." In either case, the employee on shift will probably be looking for another job on Monday.

I hope your wife's issues aren't serious, Shade. I too will keep her in my prayers.

What Joe said! As always, we'll be thinking of you and your wife shade.
P.S I think I'd keep the money. And buy a deus. And use the rest for the homeless.
