Last week, an armoured car in Louisiana dropped almost a quarter of a million dollars in cash.
If someone excited to get rich instantly had found it, this story would have ended very differently.
Fortunately, Louisiana probation officer Jessica Luebke was leaving her office on Wednesday afternoon and spotted the clear plastic bag that had fallen from the passing armoured car.
Inside the bag was $223,600 in cash.
Her first instinct was an honest one.
"I turned around immediately as soon as it registered what it actually was — that it was a huge bag of cash," she told Fox News. "I just called Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office straight away."
Luebke and a co-worker then secured the cash and waited from deputies to arrive.
