Someone Returned $90,000 From Brinks Truck Highway Cash Spill: Gothamist

It’s been a week since a Brinks truck’s door accidentally opened on a NJ highway, tossing over half a million in cash all over the lanes and sending drivers into a cash-grabbin’ frenzy, but the East Rutherford police are still trying to track down every single dollar.

With fives, tens, and hundred dollar bills raining down on Route 3, a number of motorists got out of their cars to claim some of the bounty. (Two collisions resulted from the impromptu highway cash foraging.) The next day, authorities said that $293,500 had been recovered, either by the Brinks truck driver, helpful drivers, or those who heeded warnings that this money would be considered stolen.
