$250,000 falls from armored truck www.privateofficer.com
One man walking out of a barber shop and another man walking to his car on North Salina Street discovered at least $250,000 had fallen out of an armored Loomis truck. At first, both men say they thought the bags were trash.
“I saw it and thought who dumped that trash off? As I got closer I realized that these bags were full of money, lots of money! Plastic bags full of hundred dollar bills and twenty dollar bills and I thought oh my goodness,” said Syracuse Antiques Exchange owner David Jenks.
“Two postal bins rolled over, the money spilled. I tried to catch the one bag before it went down the drain and in the water,” said Liverpool resident Hanson Herring.
Jenks took the money into his store where there happened to be a police officer inside.
Syracuse Police are working with Loomis to figure out how the money fell out of the truck.
