Drivers pulled over and scrambled out of their vehicles when an armored truck's door accidentally swung open while driving along Interstate 285 Tuesday evening -- spilling cold, hard cash everywhere.

Awfully nice of all those drivers to help gather up that money to return to the armored car crew.

Dunwoody Sgt. Robert Parsons estimated about $175,000 spilled out onto the highway, according to Atlanta affiliate WSB. Drivers will not be able to keep their hauls, however.

"Those people who do not return the money, we have video, we have tag numbers. We have footage of people on the interstate," Parsons told WSB. "What we're asking the public to do is bring the money back. Don't make us come looking for you, because if we do that, you probably will be charged."

I cannot even imagine how nuts that must have been. Rush Hour 285 is a demolition derby under optimal conditions.

Does this happen very often in Georgia because they actually put a law on the books covering this.
"...could face charges of theft of lost or mislaid property, a misdemeanor under Georgia law. Amounts exceeding $1,500 are considered a felony, however, and have harsher punishments." (anonymous quote on news broadcast)

Larceny statutes usually cover “found property” over a certain value. You KNOW (or should know) what belongs to you. If you keep property that you know isn’t yours, you shouldn’t be surprised to face charges when caught.

Read in the paper today that about $4,500 had been turned in.

Something like that happened here a few years back … [www.nbcsandiego.com] … it was the result of a drug suspect tossing a bag of cash out of their car while being chased by police.

A free-for-all ensued.

Theft by Finding, I believe, is the actual crime. Seriously.

Here's some video re/Daily Dose of Internet on YouTube (if it loads*): [youtu.be]

Make it a good day today.

Probably every state has something like an 'unlawful windfall' law.

Without it people believe 'if it's not yours, don't take it' doesn't apply to them.

Not that a law will stop a lot of people.
