It isn’t too often tat you find money lying on the side of the road, but that is exactly what happened in Mahwah New Jersey this week. Mahwah police are saying that an employee who fills and empties ATM machines left a bag with $150,000 on the road. That bag did not remain long, as video captures a white van with two occupants who pull up and make off with the money.
During rounds of emptying ATM machines, video shows an employee of Kenneth Griffin‘s company walking to his vehicle with the bags of money. He places one bag on the curb and begins making room in the trunk to fit the rest. After placing the bags in the trunk, he gets in the car and simply forgets one of the bags on the curb. Soon after he drives away, he realizes his mistake and calls to see if the bag is still on the road. The bag was gone, swiped up by a passenger in a white van who spotted the bag sitting at the curb.
The ATM worker was so distressed by his mistake, he needed medical treatment at the scene. Video captured the entire event, including the passenger picking up the bag of money and throwing it in his van. The same van was spotted on another video a shot time later stealing used tires from across the street at a tire company. Police are looking for the driver and passenger of the van, and have released the video asking for help from the public in identifying the thieves.
