    Ohio - Fallen money bag sparks cash grab

    Fallen money bag sparks Ohio cash grab


    $20 bills were floating down the street, witnesses said

    Police in the US state of Ohio say tens of thousands of dollars are missing a day after a bag of cash fell from an armoured car, sparking a money grab.

    A mad rush to pick up $20 bills broke out after the bag fell from the car in Columbus and split open.

    It is unclear how much cash was in the bag, but US media say it was at least $100,000.

    Officers are reviewing mobile phone and surveillance videos to identify who has the missing cash.

    "It's not free money," said a police sergeant.

    If people were found with the missing cash they would be charged, Sgt Dan Kelso told Associated Press news agency.

    He said he did not know how the bag of money fell from the armoured car.

    Witnesses told local media that people were scooping up as much cash as they could carry.

    "People were jumping out of their vehicles," one person said.
    Another described it as like a feeding frenzy by "a school of piranhas".

    It's hilarious to see people behaving like animals, especially arrogant Americans.

    ^ Animals? Not sure about that. I bet it was good fun, much like the ending of the movie "It's a mad mad world".

    As for being charged for picking up the money, well, "fuck the po-leece"

    I feel it would have been equally hilarious and fun to watch regardless of where the money grapping public was from. The fact that it happened in America does not make it any more or less hilarious.

    I do not mean to sound rightious but the right thing to do would be to have any of the acquired money returned to the rightful owner. I think that is what I would have done given that I am an American.

    Just imagine letting loose $100,000 worth of 20 baht notes in Bangkok, that would be pretty hysterical

    Yes it would be. Tremendously hysterical regardless of where it happened.
