Friday night's Mega Millions jackpot is $290 million, but on Friday morning, a driver on Interstate 270 might've found a financial windfall of another kind, Maryland State Police said.
About 9 a.m. an armored vehicle traveling northbound dropped a load of cash, state police said in a news release.
The U.S. currency, in various denominations up to $50 bills, is believed to have fallen from an unsecured door of the armored vehicle somewhere south of Route 109, the release said.
Maryland State Police Sgt. Mark Cummings told the AP that two bags containing about $5,700 in cash and coins spilled onto the roadway.
State police are asking anyone who picked up any money off of I-270 on Friday to take it to the Rockville Barrack, at 7915 Montrose Road.
"Police will ask no questions or render charges on anyone who makes the return," the release said.
