Officials asking public to return evidence from bank robbery


RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — Law enforcement officials are asking anyone who picked up money thrown onto Interstate 15 after a Lake Elsinore bank robbery to return the evidence.

According to Riverside County sheriff’s investigators, a man threw the money onto the freeway Saturday as he was being pursued by Riverside County sheriff’s deputies.

The Press-Enterprise reported Sunday that witnesses saw motorists driving on the freeway stop to pick up the money and drive away.

A statement from the sheriff’s office did not specify whether the evidence was only cash or if there were other items.

The man has been arrested on suspicion of robbery, felony evading and parole violations.
