A statement from police spokesman Jim Sughrue said a Loomis armored car was on the road when the back door unexpectedly opened as an employee in the truck was trying to better secure the door.

The police statement said a “brick” of money fell out and scattered $20 bills when it hit the road. Police did not say how much money was in the brick.

Police said there were no wrecks or injuries in the cash grab or cleanup.

Police say some people have returned some of the money.
