The cash flying off the roof of a northbound vehicle on Route 447 in the Poconos on Wednesday morning surprised the driver of the car following behind, police said.
But instead of keeping the currency, the driver pulled over, picked up as much as could be found and turned it in to police.
State police at Swiftwater said Wednesday night that the money awaits its rightful owner if the owner can remember the denominations of the bills and describe where the cash was lost.
Police did not say how much money was found.
The money finder was driving up Route 447, near Route 209, in Smithfield Township at 11:55 a.m. when the money started flying off the roof of the unidentified vehicle, police said.
The money finder had to stop at an intersection that the unidentified vehicle already went through, so the money finder was unable to catch up with whoever lost the cash, police said.
State police said the person who lost the money on Route 447 can call the police barracks at 570-839-7701.
So, What would you have done?
And so it goes...
