A number of cars stopped to collect cash that fell out from an armored van on a road in Dunwoody, Atlanta on Tuesday evening.
Officials said that the van dropped $175,000 USD on the road on Tuesday evening.
A video recently emerged and showed that cars were stopping to collect the cash that was dropped by the armored van.
The police are currently asking the people who collected the dropped cash to return it to them.
The police added that 6 people have turned in around $4,400 of cash that was collected on the road.
But one man stood out form them all, Randrell Lewis, an Uber driver, returned $2,150

Lewis, who works as an Uber Eats Driver, said that he did not spend any money that he recovered from the road.
During an interview with CNN, Lewis said, “It took me a minute to realize it wasn’t leaves. It was money – all over the roadway. It felt like a movie or something out of a video game, not something you would see in real life.”
He added, “I waited until this morning to see if there was a report out, and I saw it on the news. I wanted to do what was right and make sure I wasn’t doing anything illegal.”
The Atlanta police also took pictures with Lewis and praised him for his honesty.
The police also sent out a warning for the people who are still holding to the money that was dropped from the van.
During an interview with WSB-TV, Sergeant Robert Parsons said, “Those people who do not return the money, we have video, we have tag numbers. We have footage of people on the interstate. What we’re asking the public to do is bring the money back. Don’t make us come looking for you, because if we do that, you probably will be charged.”
He added, “We certainly understand the temptation of that, you (sic) certainly see the money falling from the sky. We hate to be the Grinch who stole Christmas in July, but at the same time, it’s pretty reasonable to suspect this money belongs to somebody.”
