    Case Closed on Drivers Who Grabbed Cash on I-20
    Joel Aldridge
    Weatherford police say a "substantial" amount of cash was scattered along Interstate 20 after falling out the open door of an armored truck.

    Weatherford police are no longer looking for drivers who grabbed handfuls of cash flying onto the interstate earlier this year.

    In April, the door of an armored truck flew open on westbound I-20 between mile markers 403 and 410, and an undisclosed amount of cash went flying.

    A witness told NBC 5 he saw at least two dozen people grabbing as much money as they could while their vehicles sat abandoned, doors ajar along the side of the interstate.

    Police threatened to arrest those who didn't return the cash, saying the money is property of Brinks.

    So far, they've recovered nearly $50,000 and say there's still a lot more out there, although they won't say how much.

    No one has been arrested, and investigators say they are now officially closing the case.
