  5. 5. On October 28th, 1987 at 9:30 a.m., the doors to a Metropolitan Armored Car Co. vehicle accidentally popped open, and over $1 million in cash landed in the middle of the busiest freeway in Columbus, I-71 just north of downtown. Pandemonium ensued. An estimated 100-200 people stopped their cars on the spot, blocking all lanes of the freeway, and began fighting and clawing for bags of cash. An FBI agent who would not give his name happened to be passing at the time of the incident. He told the Columbus Dispatch, "There were people carrying sacks of money. They looked like Santa Claus." He said people were screaming "Praise the Lord!" as they scooped up handfuls of cash. Less than $70,000 was returned.
