Nearly $300,000 remained blank on Friday from some-more than half a million dollars in income that went drifting from a Brink’s armored lorry on a New Jersey highway, authorities said.
East Rutherford military suggested Friday that dual bags, one with $140,000 and a other with $370,000, fell out of a lorry when a back doorway malfunctioned, heading to a furious stage on Route 3 West shortly after 8:30 a.m. on Thursday.
Good Samaritans and Brinks employees recovered $205,375 of that drifting income on a scene, military said.
“Five people possibly contacted a East Rutherford Police Department or another military agency, that led to a liberation of an additional $11,090,” according to an East Rutherford military statement.
“As of this time, $293,535 is still missing.”
East Rutherford military Capt. Phil Taormina told NBC News he’s not certain how most of that blank income is in a hands of New Jersey motorists or blew away.
“Hard to tell, it was breezy and a trade diluted a good volume of it,” Taormina said.
A Brink’s repute could not be immediately reached for criticism on Friday.
