Traffic Blocked After Armored Car Spills Coins

GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — Weld County deputies blocked traffic after a Brink’s armored car dumped coins on a highway.

Authorities say they were called to investigate a complaint of a truck blocking a highway on Thursday and discovered the rear doors of the armored vehicle had come open. They say a large amount of coins had fallen out of the back.

Deputies blocked traffic to allow the highway to be cleaned up. The amount of money spilled has not been determined and authorities do not know if any of the coins are missing.
