Money Does Fall From the Sky

May 11, 2012

Melbourne motorists heading home from work last night got a surprising shower. It wasn't rain or hail or rocks from roadworks but $50 and $100 notes! The falling cash dubbed a "shower of confetti" to the tune of $22,000 spilled near the Calder Freeway in the city's north east and as yet none of the money has been turned into police. One passer by collected $8,400 and another $12,000 suggesting "the bottom ends fallen out of an armed car". It is believed to have been stolen from a local business and police are investigating. Police urge those who may have pocketed the windfall that it is a criminal offense to possess stolen property.
