It wasn’t pennies from heaven. It was dollars. Thousands of dollars.
“There’s money blowing all over the place,” a passing motorist told police Friday.
Bills littered both sides of the fourlane McLellan Highway in a mixed commercial-residential corner of East Boston, said Sgt. William Fleming of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.
Officers recovered $7,070 in $100, $50, $20 and $10 bills; they have no idea how much was pocketed by passers-by.
No one had called to claim the money by Saturday morning, Officer Jim Browning said.
No one had turned in any more cash, either.
