San Diego police say some narcotics suspects led officers on a wild chase, throwing cash out of their truck's windows as passers-by ran onto the roadways to grab the bills. Police say the pursuit began on Thursday on southbound State Route 15. The driver took officers on a circuitous route over several streets and freeways, eventually getting onto Interstate 5. At several points during the pursuit, the suspects flung cash out of the truck's windows, prompting passers-by to run onto the roadways to grab the money.

The driver finally stopped in the middle of the highway and the suspects were arrested. It was not clear how many were in the truck. Officers retraced the route, trying to collect the scattered money.
