After a video of motorists grabbing 1000s of dollars that spilled onto a highway went viral, some of them returned their share.

Finders, keepers right? Well, not necessarily, in the eyes of the law.

When the door of an armoured truck flew open, spilling more than $100,000 onto a highway in the US state of Georgia, motorists quickly started pulling over to grab their share.

Almost as quickly, local police put out a warning that taking the money was theft and urged culprits to return their loot. When the cops had reached the scene, only a few hundred dollars were still scattered around.

Just six hours later, an update on the Dunwoody Police Department Facebook page reported a number of people returning money.

The man featured in the photograph reportedly brought back bills totalling around $2,000.

Responses to the post ranged from 'That's integrity!" to 'No, that's stupidity'.
