Police in the US say a man drove off with a bag containing $1,50,000 in cash after two employees who were replenishing a cash machine mistakenly left it on a lawn.

Police say that the cash dispenser employees had stopped at a business in New Jersey state when one of them placed the satchel on the front lawn as he moved items around in their vehicle.

They then drove off, forgetting the bag.

Sometime later on Monday, surveillance video shows a passenger in a white van grabbing the bag. The van was seen in other video surveillance pulling into a nearby auto repair business and pilfering used tires.

Police say the cash machine employees are cooperating with the investigation.
