Armored car makes it rain on 285


Here’s what Dunwoody PD had to say about the incident…

“Heads up Dunwoody, it’s cloudy with a chance of cash… 

Last night around 8:00 PM, Dunwoody officers responded to the area of I-285 west and Ashford Dunwoody Road regarding money flying all over the road. The 911 callers said that 15+ vehicles had stopped and people were frantically taking the money. 

When our officers arrived, they located an armored car on the right shoulder. The armored car crew said the side door came open while they were driving and money spilled out onto 285. Officers and the truck crew gathered a few hundred dollars that was still there when officers arrived, but plenty was taken by passerby’s sticky fingers. The exact amount is currently unknown. 

While we certainly understand the temptation, it’s still theft and the money should be returned. We are thankful there were no crashes or pedestrians struck as a result of this isolated cash storm.

Have a great Wednesday! (RP)”

Dunwoody residents had this to say…

“How much of the money was recovered? Asking for a friend.”

“#forgiven… We’ve all forgotten to close the door on a car full of money before. Or kids. 🍷🍷🍷 “

“A lot of people now have a great story to tell about how they risked their lives for enough money to buy Chic-Fil-A”

“Me again. What were the denominations? Same friend wants to know.”
