Arrests now possible: Nearly $200K still missing from money spill on Route 3Posted: Updated:
Around $188,000 remains missing from last week's armored truck spill on Route 3, near MetLIfe Stadium, and police in East Rutherford are warning people to pony up before they get picked up.
According to police, anyone turning in money won't be prosecuted, but that anyone seen on surveillance video taking money who doesn't turn it in could be arrested.
More than $500,000 in cash spilled last Thursday from the Brink's armored truck.
Police say more than $200,000 was recovered at the scene, partly due to the help of Good Samaritans who stopped and helped the driver.
More than $100,000 has been returned in the days since then, including one person who bought in about $90,000.
