When two sacks of cash fell out of an armored vehicle and poured on the roadway in Southern California, drivers witnessed an incredible spectacle.
According to the reports, one of the Sectran Security Inc. truck’s doors popped open as it drove down I-5 in Carlsbad at approximately 9:14 a.m. Friday, according to Sgt. Curtis Martin of the California Highway Patrol’s Oceanside district. By 10 a.m., the CHP had arrived and attempted to keep drivers off the road and reclaim the money. The CHP said it is collaborating with the FBI on the investigation’s following stages.
According to Martin, the vehicle left San Diego for a Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. office (FDIC). Bystanders jumped at the chance for some free cash, filming the incredible image of money blowing across the road as individuals grabbed what they could.
Sgt. Chris Martin of the California Highway Patrol said, “Money all over the highways.” Because of social media posts and recordings, authorities have “a lot of evidence.” A couple was detained after abandoning their vehicle and impeding traffic with $20,000 in cash.
Moreover, the FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) and an armored truck own the money recovered on a Los Angeles roadway. Some people have returned “a lot” of the money, but more remains missing from the vehicle, he says. It isn’t your money. Therefore it must be returned.
Martin confessed that “Determining the loss will take some time.” Furthermore, he said that “We don’t get to decide what the repercussions are, but we can always declare that the best policy is honesty.”
