Armored truck's doors open, dumping cash on I-70

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - State Police say the back doors of a Brinks armored truck swung open along a highway in Indianapolis, sending cash falling onto the highway's lanes.

Sgt. John Perrine says the truck lost some of its cargo along Interstate 70 about 9 a.m. Wednesday when the truck's back doors opened up. Officers remained at the scene about 90 minutes later collecting the money along I-70, near Sam Jones Expressway on the city's southwest side.



The Indianapolis Star reports state troopers are investigating the incident and also looking into tips about motorists who stopped along the highway to pick up some of the cash.

Perrine says anyone who picked up some of the money can be charged with theft and he urged them to contact State Police to return the money.
