Drivers passing through Frontenac stop to grab raining cash
FRONTENAC (AP) - Money doesn't grow on trees but rather it rains in Frontenac, where people passing through this week collected cash that landed on their windshields and fell to the street.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports drivers on Wednesday scooped up the money, including $100 bills, after a purse apparently flew off the top of a car.
A woman who retrieved the bag dropped it off at a nearby St. Louis store. The business' owner says employees tried to contact the purse's owner but couldn't find a phone number for her.
They notified Frontenac police Thursday. An officer stopped by to pick up the purse and the money that had been turned in.
A police detective said he couldn't comment on whether the woman and her purse have been reunited.
