The American who dropped US $30,000 from the truck (and what the police are doing to recover them): This Thursday “rained” money on a highway in Michigan, United States.
A man driving his truck in the city of Grand Heaven created chaos on the road, when a cardboard box he carried in the back of the vehicle accidentally fell.
The box contained around US $ 30,000 in cash, according to the driver’s confession to the city’s Department of Public Safety.
When the drivers passing by on the highway saw the tickets in the air, they stopped the traffic and got out of their vehicles to collect the money scattered along the route.
The local police had to intervene to restore order, while publishing a statement on their social networks requesting everyone who had collected money from the place, to deliver it.
The officers only managed to recover US $ 2,470 from the scene the day of the incident, after closing several sections of the highway to be able to work in the collection of cash.
Until this Saturday several people had approached the authorities, who claimed to have recovered only about US $ 7,000.
“The owner will thank you”
“If you have found money, please give it to the Department of Public Safety of Grand Haven”, requested this instance to the premises on Saturday.
The Department also said that, although part of the money had already been recovered, there is still “enough left” to complete the total amount lost.
It was learned that two 17-year-olds gave US $ 630, while a woman gave almost $ 4,000.
“Thanks, there’s still a lot to be done, we congratulate you for your honesty!” Authorities said on Facebook.
“The owner of the money will thank you.”
