Digital Daily: Armored truck in Georgia loses $175K

Updated: July 11, 2019 03:48 PM

Two men who were part of a mad dash for cash on a Georgia highway earlier this week did the honorable thing and returned the money to police.

On Tuesday evening in DeKalb County, an armored truck lost $175,000 on the highway.


Many drivers pulled over and began scooping up cash. It was a dangerous maneuver, but luckily there were no accidents.

The armored truck personnel didn't even realize they lost their money until a driver pulled up alongside them and pointed it out.

The first man who returned the money brought back more than $2,000, and another man turned in $500.

Others who picked up the loose cash might want to consider bringing the money back also.

Police said those who don't return the money could be charged with either a misdemeanor or a felony charge.
