No free money in New Jersey: Police want spilled banknotes back

www.yahoo.com...

Half a MILLION dollars in bills were spilled out of Brinks truck.
Tons of motorist left their cars and went for the mad money grab.

Police have asked motorist to turn in the money, and some have.
There is still around 300K missing.

So here is the thing, it is not necessarily illegal for those people to keep it in New Jersey.

So what would you do?????

Take lots of pictures.

Exchange said pictures for money, preferably from those in photos.

Also may extend the offer to Brinks.

That's no joke, Legos are freaking expensive
I went to a craft fair and there were people that had a booth selling only Lego minifigs each for $10
and they were making a killing

Every state has different finders keepers laws.
From what i'm reading regarding the law in NJ and how the motorist described finding the money (they didn't know where it originated from, some thought it was a stunt), it seems legal, and would be hard to prove otherwise

Booze, working girls, and maybe a new BMW convertible? A new stereo with speakers so big I have to move out! Party time, Nicky style! I would not turn it in. Every time I have tried to do the right thing I get screwed. I’m due for a wind fall.

I don’t give a Flying F about the law.

I’m making crap up, I have a mint BMW Z3 and working girls lose their pizazz pretty quick. And how many meaningful 3 ways can a guy have? I would probably grudgingly, give them their damn money back. I am that kind of idiot. Besides karma has a long memory, and pays dividends.

What if that money was your good Karma paying you back?



Karmas like, hey you idiot, I practically dropped the money in your lap!

Like I said, I’m an idiot. But I mean well. I’m the kind of guy that would get his ass run over helping an old lady across the street.

First , source where it is "not necessarily against the law"
Second , once the bags are opened the money is dyed (you are too). Cant spend it lest one be arrested almost immediately
(In most cases)

I am a spoiler of dreams.

if you took it, it's stealing plain and simple. I don't care what type of justifications one would make. I don't condone it but I do understand for those who are literally drowning in debt even though they are working and trying to do everything right. It still doesn't mean it "doesn't count" as stealing.

That's my .02

Technically its theft.
We find a wallet and turn that in with the cash still inside but when it's an evil faceless bank somehow we justify taking something we know doesn't belong to us.

Funny how the human mind works.

I listed a link twice showing how it is "not necessarily against the law" in New Jersey.

Also, It wasn't bags that went flying, it was actual bills, all over the road. No ink, no bags.
If you do a search there are some videos and photos.

I doubt they had dye packs in the bags.
I won't go into detail about the dye because my wife works in banking.

Morally it might be, but not according to the Law in NJ




Third, the state must carry the burden of proof to show that the defendant knew the identity of the owner. Again, this is a rather fact-specific determination. For instance, if the bag of cash was labeled with the company name or left in the lobby of a bank, one would likely know the identity of the owner of the lost property. However, if the discovered cash was a few loose bills blowing down an abandoned street, it is highly unlikely that the finder would or could know the identity of the property’s owner.


The bills were literally flying all over the highway. There are actual statements from people saying they had no clue where it was coming from and they thought it was some kind of publicity stunt.

Would keep it.
Think there is a huge difference between an individuals hard-earned money, and the insured money of a heartless corporation.

Is brinks a heartless corporation?
