Bank Van Dumps Cash - A bank courier van spilled more than $100,000 in cash along a Pennsylvania highway on Thursday, after one of the doors opened up. and motorists stopped to grab it.

Police say much of the money was blown around by the wind after the bag burst open when it hit the road. Lt. James Englert says “well into six figures” in cash is missing after the money grab in Upper St. Clair, just southwest of Pittsburgh.

Police are investigating why the door of the Fidelity Courier Service van opened. But they say the fact the door opened doesn’t mean the money was free. They say taking it is theft.

Anyone who took money has a two-week grace period to return it without fear of prosecution.

The courier company is offering a reward for the return of the money.

CBS affiliate KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh reports that the van driver, from Fidelity Courier Services in Sharon, didn’t realize a back door had flung open and bags of cash were flying out until a passing driver alerted him, according to police. At least one bag burst open, sending bills flying into the air.

A crowd quickly assembled, and, by the time the driver got back, only $400 remained.
