A pair of robbers who stuffed stolen money down their trousers, were caught on camera chasing it down the street as it blew away.
CCTV footage shows the two men walking down a street in Droylsden, Greater Manchester, before the notes begins streaming out behind them.
One of the men can be seen crouching down in what appears to be an attempt to stop any more of their bounty escaping from his trousers. The other chases after the bank notes as they tumble away in the wind.
Greater Manchester police released the footage after two men forced staff to hand over money at a travel agent on in Droylsden last month.
Police say the men ran down Craven Street before the notes started dropping from their trousers.
They later got into a silver car which sped off.
“This duo threatened innocent people working in the travel agents and should know their actions are utterly unacceptable," said Detective Constable Phil Scargill of GMP’s Tameside borough.
“They took every step to secure the money in the shop, but left the stolen notes in their wake as they fled from the scene.
“I’d urge anyone who saw the two men, or caught sight of them dropping notes as they ran from the travel agents, to please get in touch with police and share what you know.”
