Police in Georgia encouraged the public to "do the right thing" after a flurry of money spilled out from an armored auto onto a Georgia interstate Tuesday night.

WSB Radio reports that the rain of cash prompted a dozen or more drivers to pull over on I-285 near Ashford-Dunwoody Road. According to CNN, police responded to 911 calls that over 15 vehicles had stopped on the interstate to pick up the money.

According to CNN, police estimate that almost $1,75,000 was spilled out when the truck's side door sprung open. They're investigating to see how much is missing.

Dunwoody Police said there were no crashes or injuries as a result of the windfall, and authorities were able to recover a few hundred dollars at the scene. "Everybody started pulling over and it was insane". Police are checking social media video to find the drivers with sticky fingers.

"While we certainly understand the temptation, it's still theft and the money should be returned", police wrote in a Facebook post.

A person commits the offense of theft of lost or mislaid property when he comes into control of property that he knows or learns to have been lost or mislaid and appropriates the property to his own use without first taking reasonable measures to restore the property to the owner.

Videos showed other drivers stopping their vehicles and running on the highway, trying to collect as many notes as possible.

Lewis told WXIA that while he thought about what the money could do for his family, he ultimately made a decision to return it because it wasn't worth the legal trouble.

At least two people have already returned some of the bills. "Those people who do not return the money, we have video, we have tag numbers".

Motorists driving along a busy highway in the USA couldn't believe their eyes when thousands of dollars of cash began raining down right in front of them.
