Money topples from armored car into Ind. traffic
INDIANAPOLIS — Money doesn’t grow on trees, but it seemed to fall from the sky in Indianapolis. Police said three bundles of money fell off the back of an armored car Wednesday near an intersection in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. A car hit one of the bundles and sent bills blowing into the breeze.
Witnesses told The Indianapolis Star about 10 people stormed through traffic into the intersection to fill their arms with cash.
Two others stopped to help collect the money and guard it until police and the armored car company arrived.
It’s not immediately known how much money went missing, but WTHR-TV said most of the blown cash was recovered.
