Cash found on high­way

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

PO­LICE north of Colum­bus, Ohio, are try­ing to fig­ure out how thou­sands of dol­lars in cash ended up along a high­way. Po­lice chief Russ Martin in the city of Delaware said there were so many ban­knotes in the me­dian that an of­fi­cer said it looked as though the field was grow­ing money. Authorities had been alerted by a mo­torist, and of­fi­cers spent hours col­lect­ing the cash. Martin would not re­veal the to­tal ex­cept to say it was ‘‘ five fig­ures’’. He said po­lice checked with the FBI, an ar­moured car com­pany and bank couri­ers and none re­ported miss­ing any money. The chief was con­fi­dent of­fi­cers rounded up all the bills and said driv­ers shouldn’t stop in hopes of find­ing trea­sure.
