SAN DIEGO (AP) - Federal drug agents plan to review video of a freeway chase in San Diego to identify motorists who haven’t turned over thousands of dollars in cash that fleeing suspects threw out of their truck.

Television and surveillance cameras captured the scene of two men throwing out fistfuls of cash while leading police on the wild chase Thursday.

Drug Enforcement Administration spokeswoman Eileen Zeidler said that after the suspects were arrested police and DEA agents recovered more than $17,000.

Civilians also stopped to collect the cash. Several have turned it over to police but investigators believe some have not.

Zeidler says the money is considered evidence in a criminal investigation.
