Fleeing Bank Robber Tosses Cash All Over Florida Highway

Police officers were forced to clean up the cash, note by note.

A Florida bank robber's desperate attempt to escape police Tuesday included tossing his ill-gotten cash onto a busy highway.

Witnesses told investigators that the man was carrying a black handgun when he jumped over the counter at a Clearwater bank, ordered people to the ground and demanded money.

Once he got his loot, he fled in his getaway car.

The man abandoned the car and fled on foot into a nearby apartment complex.
