URBANA, Md. (AP) - Drivers scrambled to grab money flying around a Maryland highway after an armored truck’s door flew open.

Maryland State Police say a lock on the armored truck apparently malfunctioned, causing the door to open Friday morning. A bag of cash fell onto Interstate 270 near Urbana, sending money flying in the air.

Police say a number of drivers stopped on the interstate and grabbed what cash they could before a fire department vehicle arrived and turned on its emergency lights.

Responding troopers were able to help the truck’s driver recover about $200. It’s not known how much cash was lost.

Police urge the drivers who took the flying cash to return it to the state police barrack in Frederick, or else face charges of theft if they’re found.
