Some days ago, a Brinks truck blessed some commuters in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA with approximately N215 million ($600,000) in cash as the Bullion van door mistakenly opened.
NAIJ.com gathered that the incident occurred when a rear door of the truck opened while travelling on Interstate 70. Bags and bundles of money, along with loose bills, came showering out of the truck before it could come to a stop.
The driver learned what was going on when another driver waved at him and pointed to the back of the armoured truck.
Police rushed to the scene and tried to collect as much money as possible.
While several other drivers got down from their vehicles and helped themselves to as much of the cash as they could, residents of the adjacent neighbourhood also reportedly scaled a highway fence to grab money.
Meanwhile, in a related development, NAIJ.com previously reported that dare devil armed robbers on Friday, December 8, launched an attack on a bullion van conveying over N60 million in Asaba, the Delta state capital.
The robbery operation was said to have caused panic in the state capital as motorists abandoned their vehicles in the middle of the Benin-Asaba dual carriageway and scampered for safety, The Nation reports.
