Madrid, 21 (Europa Press)
An armored truck dropped a large amount of money on a highway in the city of Carlsbad in California, United States, causing a traffic jam as several drivers abandoned their vehicles to try to collect bills.
According to US network NBC, officials have warned that those who took the money must return it within 48 hours or face “potential criminal charges”.
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) and the FBI are investigating the incident, and have warned that several videos posted on social networks show the faces and license plates of drivers who came to collect the money.
“Most of the drivers immediately returned the money to the agents, however, drivers have been seen fleeing the scene with the stolen money,” the agencies warned in a joint statement.
The Highway Patrol has thanked those who have returned the money and asked those who have not done so yet to “do the right thing”.
