Atlanta residents took a money shower last night!

On Tuesday night, on the I-285 interstate near Atlanta, the door of an armored truck came open, spilling cash money on the highway. A video of the event shows drivers pulling over to scoop money off the ground.

The truck’s crew estimated it could be more than $100,000 that fell off the truck. Officers and the crew were only able to collect about $200.

Dunwoody Police are now asking for residents to return the money. Those who took money, which could be more than 15 people, could be charged with theft of lost or mislaid property. A misdemeanor in Georgia.

“When you come into control of property that you know is lost or mislaid and you appropriate that to your own use, without returning it to the owner, certainly it is a crime,” Sgt. Robert Parsons told the radio station.
