$100,000 Spills From Armored Car; Passers-By Pocket Most of It So Far

Free MoneyWould you return the money that fell out of an armored car onto the street? Theodore Decker writes in the Columbus Dispatch:

More than $100,000 spilled out the back of an armored car in Whitehall yesterday, and most of it is still missing.

Police urged anyone who couldn’t resist temptation to reconsider before officers come calling.

Whitehall Sgt. Dan Kelso said a Garda armored car was eastbound on E. Broad Street at 8:20 a.m. yesterday when a bag of cash fell from the back into the intersection at Hamilton Road.

“It hit the ground and split open, and there was money all over the place,” Kelso said.

A unsecured door might have come open; police are investigating.

    When did we get to the point where we applaud the dishonest? This money does not belong to them. The right thing to do is to return it.

      Probably at the same time our public officials (Democrats AND Republicans) decided they no longer care about our basic liberties or the constitution. I say good on em! Get yours while our 'leaders' loot this broken and sinking country.

    keep it! The bank stole that money in the first place. And leaving an armored car open is a symbols of how irresponsible financial institutions have become. At least now the money goes to some that most likely need it. The bank can just order more bills anyway, they just give the government a call on the big red phone
