Police Officers Find £30,000 From Safe Seized In McDonald's Car Park

Police Officers Find £30,000 From Safe Seized In McDonald's Car Park

Police body-cam footage captures the moment a stunned officer swears in disbelief after finding £30,000 in cash inside a safe seized from a crook at a branch of McDonald's:

Cops were called to the fast food restaurant following reports a man had been seen with a knife at around 10.35am on Wednesday 7 October.

Officers swooped on the suspect's vehicle in the McDonald's car park, at Gallagher Retail Park, in Coventry and found a large metal safe on the back seat.

Footage shows two officers opening the safe back at the police station after the suspect provided the code in order for them to gain access.

One officer can be heard saying: "It's like Oceans 11 isn't it?" The other then exclaims: "F***ing hell, pardon my French," as bundles of cash fall out onto the floor.

In total £30,000 ($39,000) in cash was seized from the safe - which is enough to buy 139,860 chicken nuggets or 92,700 Big Macs, although we're not sure whether a Maccies order was the priority for carrying so much wedge around.

Matthew and Maria Colonna-Emanuel noticed the rusty metal box in the garden when they first moved into their house, but thought it was an electrical box or part of a cable.

It was only when wildlife had eaten much of the foliage behind their house that the couple realised it was a safe and dug it up.

Inside was a large amount of wet money in plastic bags, jewellery and other items worth a whopping $52,000.

Speaking to CNN, Matthew said the safe held 'hundreds, jewellery, diamonds, engagement ring' and 'dozens of rings, gold with jade'. He added: "It was stunning."
