Butterfingers!

  • An armed man in his 20s who dropped more than $1 million as he ran from a security guard who fired a shot at him after robbing a South Side bank Nov. 15 remains at large Tuesday. The Seaway National Bank branch at 645 E. 87th St. was robbed Nov. 15 about 6:10 p.m., according to FBI reports, which indicated the bank was closed when it was robbed.

    The robber got away with just over $1 million dollars, but dropped the money as he was running. Chicago Police had to manually count the money, which totaled more than $1 million, Gresham District police said. FBI spokeswoman Cynthia Yates could not confirm the dollar amount.

And he dropped it all.

We don't know why CPD counted the money manually as we're pretty sure the order states the money will be sealed in a property bag, signed by a sergeant under observation by a lieutenant, sealed by the captain and transported by armored car while guarded by God Himself to E&RPS for disbursement along with all the drop guns and narcotics to be planted on people.

What a Christmas it would have been.

My guess is that when it was dropped it was scattered around the ground and blowing around and had to be quickly scooped up!

I'm very skeptical. Doesn' t a million bucks take up a lot of space and weigh a heck of a lot even in large denominations?

Ask one of the staduim venues in chicagoland to count it. Takes 2 - 3 hrs under camera and saves tons of man power then counting it by hand. But they's say no or not want the liability, or ask the bank for a couple of counters, or maybe the dept can by a money counter.

The short answer - NO. Having worked around money before answering the call of the CPD - a million bucks, in large denominations, really does not take up that much space.

Hollywood ruined it for you with the ever present silver colored, metal, brief case filled with money in all of the movies. So cliche.

Then the million was "inventoried" into a CPD bank account and the interest skimmed.

The weight of $1 million dollars would be the following given that any paper currency in the U.S. is 1 gram in weight or.03527 ounces.

All $100 bills (10,000) = 352.7 ounces or 22.04 pounds
pounds
All $50 bills (20,000) = 705.4 oz or 44.0875 pounds
All $20 bills (50,000) = 1,763.5 oz or 110.21875 pounds
All $10 bills (100,000) = 3,527 oz or 220.4375 pounds
All $5 bills (200,000) = 7054 oz or 440.875 pounds
All $2 bills (500,000) = 17635 oz 1,102.1875 pounds
All $1 bills (1,000,000) = 35,270 oz or 2204.375 pounds

So literally a million dollars can be a ton of money.

The robber disarmed a security guard who was carrying the money (which was banded and in large shrink wrapped bundles, 3 in all) up from a vault. He grabbed two bundles and headed out the door. As he ran he dropped the guards gun and a CITIZEN picked it up and shot at him. Unable to grab his own gun while holding the bundles, he dropped them and fled. the money was counted at the station, but not manually. They just went by the banded amounts. It was a couple of thousand over $1 million.

If I tell you how I know, I gotta...you know

How long have you people been the police? There's no way this guy was running with 1 million dollars. It would have weighed hundreds of pounds.
