Several bags of banknotes fell out of the collection car and flew along the road. Those who saw the bags fall out were the first to get out of the cars. They didn't get confused and started collecting banknotes and filming it on video.
However, the collectors immediately called the police and warned that misappropriation of money could be a criminal offense.
In the end, three Americans were arrested and the rest were forced to return the "found bills."
California Road Patrol Officer Jim Bettencourt said that the collectors may have closed the door of the armored van unsafely, so the bags of money fell out.
