An armored truck got into an accident in Hong Kong on Christmas Eve, spilling more than $4.5 million
on a busy highway.
Drivers frantically got out of their cars to pick up the HK$500 banknotes, which amount to roughly $65 each.
So far, 30 people turned HK$5.69 million over to the police, who, on Thursday, caught two people keeping some of the cash in their homes.
They were arrested after police reviewed CCTV footage to determine the license plate of the taxi they jumped out of.
The armored vehicle, owned by security firm G4S, was carrying HK$270 million in total and lost HK$15.23 million in the accident in Wan Chai.
Bank of China hired the firm to deliver the cash and said G4S will cover the losses.
The three guards operating the vehicle decided to keep driving to G4S’s headquarters after the accident, only stopping when news outlets began reporting what happened.
