Sheriff: $41,000 missing after armored car wreck

READ MORE:

LEXINGTON, N.C. (AP) - Investigators in Davidson County are trying to find $41,000 missing from an armored truck following a wreck on U.S. 52.

The Dispatch of Lexington reports (http://bit.ly/Z0Joa2 ) that Brinks filed a report with the sheriff's office Tuesday night that said the money was missing from the truck. It was originally reported that all the money had been recovered.

The N.C. Highway Patrol said another car was changing lanes Monday night and hit the truck, sending it off the road and into an embankment. The truck overturned and spilled the money.

The two Brinks employees were taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem. A hospital spokeswoman said 32-year-old Michael Gerringer of Winston-Salem is in serious condition, and 23-year-old John Baldwin of Kernersville is in good condition.

Something smells fishy

Why would Brinks originally say that all the money was accounted for, but now interestingly $41,000 is suddenly missing? That's a rather large amount to accidentally 'overlook.' I hope this gets investigated as it sounds like fraud to me!
