$30K Spills Onto Highway, Traffic Backs Up as Drivers Stop to Grab Cash
The department of public safety is imploring people to surrender any riches they may have acquired on the road.
A lot of drivers in Michigan must have thought it was their lucky day when cold, hard cash spilled onto the road before them.
Police said a box with $30,000 fell off the back of a truck that was driving down U.S. 31, the Grand Haven Department of Public Safety wrote on Facebook.
The truck driver had forgotten the loot was still on his bumper when he took off, and only $2,500 was immediately returned. By Saturday, more money came in as a pair of teenagers turned in $630 and a woman forked over nearly $3,900.
"Thank you and way to go! We commend you for your honesty!!" the Grand Haven Department of Public Safety wrote on Facebook. "The owner of the money will be grateful."
But police are still hoping for the remaining cash to show up. The department is imploring people to surrender any riches they may have acquired on the road.
