“Never in All My Years have I Heard of a Bag of Money Bouncing Out of the Back of an Armored Truck. That’s Something that Happens in the Spy Movies”

On 31 March 2015 while driving near Salt Lake City International Airport. Dan Kennedy was driving to work when he saw a large orange bag fall from a Brinks truck onto the road. The bag was a traffic hazard, so Mr. Kennedy stopped his car so that he could move the bag. He said, “I thought it was going to be light. I reached down to grab it, and I couldn’t move it.” The bag was filled with cash — 75 pounds of cash. Mr. Kennedy did the right thing and called the Utah Highway Patrol. Trooper Brady Zaugg, one of the three UHP troopers who responded to the call, said, “It was clear for everyone to see that it was just wads and wads of very cleanly stacked … $50s, $100s and so on. It was not a bag of nickels, that’s for sure.” The bag was about four feet tall and two feet wide. Mr. Kennedy said about the troopers, “That sack of money was sitting there, and they all just kind of just looked at it stunned for a minute. They all stepped back and watched.” Trooper Zaugg said, “Never in all my years have I heard of a bag of money bouncing out of the back of an armored truck. That’s something that happens in the spy movies.” He added about Mr. Kennedy, “Seals [of the individual bags] were still intact. He hadn’t disturbed it at all, so he obviously did the right thing for the right reason. … It’s not like he had to sit and have that moral dilemma. … He didn’t sit and dither on it. He immediately did the right thing.”
